This exhibit is about Rome. I have always wanted to travel and Rome is at the top of my list of places to travel. In this exhibit, I want to show a few beautiful pieces of Rome.  The purpose of this exhibit is to travel to all these beautiful sites through the paintings.

While in Rome studying antiquities and contemporary master artist, Heemskerck created this painting as his interpretation of the kidnapping of Helen and to compliment Pio's collection on antiquities. The Prince of Troy kidnapping the Queen of Sparta, Helen. this story has many versions and Heemskerck based his inter[pentation on the versions that include the heroic achievements of the ancient world. This fits into the exhibit because it is one of the most famous landscapes of Rome and it also includes a story.
The precision and detail in this painting were wonderfully done. I included this piece into the gallery because it is so descriptive and percise.
The Via di Ripetta in Rome is almost like a photograph. The details of this painting are so precise. From the road to the buildings closer to the front of the painting to the buildings in the far back. The linear perspective and the proportions and vanishing points add to Bellotto's details. It is almost like I was here in person.
Young Bellotto left Venice to explore Italy and central and northern Europe. During these travels Bellotto developed his own distinctive view of both the towns and landscapes he visited. This landmark is famous in Rome. Bellotto's images gives insight on what the Ruins of the Forum, Rome looked like during 1743.
The Forum is one of the most important places in Rome, it is the heart of the ancient city. For years the ruined temples and monuments decayed. During the 19th century, these ruins began to reemerge, Turner captured the beauty of these ruins along with the Capitoline Hill. I put this in the gallery because even the ruins deserve to be seen. They are still valuable.
While in Rome Hansen painted outdoors in order to release himself from constraints. Hasen painted the Arch in an unconventional angle in order to shorten the facade. Hasen use of different color and hues of sunlight shows the The Arch of Titus on a bright sunny day. This painting is important because it shows another beautiful place in Rome. Hasen use of lights and shadows give greater detail into the architect of the building.
This painting is Turner's vision and memories of the Eternal City. The Modern Rome-Campo Vaccino shows the moon shimmering across the city while the sun sets on the right. Imagine yourself standing and taking in this amazing view. I included this piece in the gallery because I can imagine myself standing here looking at this amazing view.
