Lithograph, rare. Sheet size: 220 x 315mm (8¾ x 12¼"). Trimmed to image and around title.
A view of the Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua, a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica in Padua, northern Italy. Although the Basilica is visited as a place of pilgrimage by people from all over the world, it is not the principal cathedral of the city, a title belonging to the Cathedral-Basilica of St. Mary of Padua. To the right is the Equestrian Statue of Gattamelata by Italian early Renaissance artist Donatello, dating from 1453. It portrays the Renaissance condottiero Erasmo da Narni, known as 'Gattamelata', who served mostly under the Republic of Venice, which ruled Padua at the time.
