Description

'La Melancholie', engraved by Simon Thomasin after Domenico Fetti (Dominique Feti). An emblematic study featuring a plane, an orrery, books and an hourglas. Fetti (c 1589 -1623), was an Italian draughtsman and painter famed for portraits and religious paintings reworked into contemporary genre scenes. These popular paintings tend to be small, but are notable for their broad brushstrokes. Although Fetti was probably born in Rome, he is often considered a member of the Venetian School.
