Historical Collectible Italian Architecture Art Print

Palazzo Strozzi, begun in 1489 for the merchant Filippo Strozzi, from designs of Benedetto da Majano, which were continued by Simone Pallajuolo - Il Cronaca. The palace is faced with rough-hewn stone, which, instead of detracting from, gives, by contrast, an appearance of extra finish to the details. At the corners are beautiful specimens by Caparrą of the iron fanale, which were only allowed to the most distinguished citizens. Florentine Art and Architecture - Florence, like many cities of the Renaissance, had been built over many years and so was home to numerous churches, public buildings, and houses constructed with Romanesque or Gothic architecture. Therefore, when a revival of classical styles became popular, new edifices in the classical style were built alongside or added to buildings of older styles. The concept of the dome first emerged during the Renaissance in the form of an architectural marvel that tops the Santa Maria del Fiore, the cathedral of Florence. The construction of the dome marks the beginning of Renaissance architecture; the cathedral and its dome together represent early Renaissance style--one that blends old and new designs.

This exquisite Architecture Print shows a remarkable drawing of Tuscan Renaissance Architecture. This is a rare 1874 reprint from the publication of 1815. This print is over 130 years old.
