  • Descripció
    Personification of the Tiber, reclining, holding a cornucopia; the she-wolf and Romulus and Remus accompany, after an antique group. Engraving made by Nicolas Beatrizet and published by Gio Jacomo de Rossi in his Speculum Romanea Magnificentiae. Bartsch / Le Peintre graveur (XV.267.96) --- Robert-Dumesnil 1835-71 / Le Peintre-Graveur Français (IX.172.100.I) --- Huelsen 1921 / Das Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae des Antonio Lafreri (60.a) ----- (Text from Michael Bury, 'The Print in Italy 1550-1620' :The attribution of this engraving to Beatrizet is generally accepted. The river God Tiber, now in the Louvre, was one of the select group of ancient sculptures housed in the Belvedere statue court in the Vatican (Haskell and Penny, no.79). The engraving shows the reclining figure accompanied by the twins Romulus and Remus and the she-wolf that suckled them. The top of the great marble platform on which the figures are placed is carved with rippling water, which cascades over the front edge; Beatrizet extended the water image to make it seem as if it fills the whole foreground. He also accommodated the charming scenes of the life of the river, carved on three sides of the marble platform, representing them as a frieze in margins at the top and down the two sides. Beatrizet's imaginative solutions to the representation of antique sculpture enabled him to combine accuracy with an attractive visual effect (see M.Bury, PQ XIII 1996, p.126).
