Campanella Angelo..Pitture antiche della Villa Negroni, Roma, 1778-1786
The prints, engraved by Angelo Campanella and Pietro Marco Vitali, record antique murals that were discovered in 1777 in the ruins of an ancient villa on the site of the Villa Negroni in Rome. Derived from drawings by Anton Raphael Mengs and Anton von Maron, they incorporate in an architectural setting mythological scenes relating to Venus, Adonis, Hercules, Bacchus and Ariadne, and Minerva.
The Villa Negroni is also known as the Villa Peretti-Negroni and the Villa Montalto.
