About This Image

Ancient Roman arches are truly the epitome of Rome. The first brick arches were apparently Mesopotamian, but under the Romans, the arch flourished. In the classical world, visit any old ruins, and Roman arches will almost be literally everywhere you look. The ancient Colosseum is basically one arch after another. In fact the window arch you see in this print is from one of the upper levels of the Colosseum in the heart of the ruins of ancient Rome.

In the piazza beyond this ancient brick arch is, yes, more Roman Arches. In this case that’s the Arch of Constantine, erected in the 4th century. My arches run out at that point. The hill in the distance is the ancient Palatine Hill with the church of San Bonaventura al Palatino on its peak. Ah well, I bet there’s at least an arch or two in that old church even if we can’t see them from here.

After all Roman arches span the centuries in Roman architecture. The landmark Colosseum was already a couple of hundred years old when the arch of Constantine was built! So, Roman arches are indeed a real fixture of architecture in the ancient world. It was the arch that made so many of the buildings of ancient Rome possible from Coliseums to aqueducts. That’s why this print feels to me as it captures the flavor of the ancient world.

Have you stood in the Colosseum? Perhaps strolled past the Arch of Constantine? Or maybe you simply love the classic Roman architecture in this print? I would love to hear what speaks to you the most in this Italian print?

Note: The Historic Centre of Rome, which includes the architecture seen in this print, is a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site.

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
