1675 Joh. FRANCK - VATICAN St. PETERS Rome Italy - original double folio engraving
43 x 37 cm
According to Frommel, Falda's illustration from "Il Teatro Nuovo" (Vol. III, p. 3) is the model for Franck's engraving (see Frommel 2009 (a), pp. 185 f.). The composition of the perspective view of St. Peter and its proportions are taken exactly. However, the representation of the people is changed: It represents the ceremonial event of a collection and increases the number of people. He also dispenses with the numbering of individual elements and the associated legend.
