A Collection of Etchings: From the Most Celebrated Ancient and Modern Productions in Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture of the Italian and French Schools is a book compiled by Charles Paul Landon and originally published in 1821. The book features a collection of etchings of some of the most famous works of art from the Italian and French schools of painting, sculpture, and architecture. The etchings are reproduced from original works by artists such as Michelangelo, Raphael, and Leonardo da Vinci, as well as more contemporary artists like Jacques-Louis David and Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. The book is divided into four parts, each focusing on a different school of art: the Italian School, the French School, the Roman School, and the Neapolitan School. The etchings are accompanied by brief descriptions of each work of art, providing context and historical background. A Collection of Etchings is a valuable resource for art historians, students of art, and anyone interested in the history and development of Italian and French art.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
