This print showcases the intricate details of a Composite Order, dating back to around 1750. Created by the talented Italian artist Giovanni Battista Borra, this masterpiece is captured in brown and black ink and wash over graphite on laid paper. Measuring at 31.4x20 cm, it is currently housed in the esteemed Yale Center for British Art's Paul Mellon Collection in the USA. The image highlights an exquisite combination of Ionic volute and Corinthian acanthus leaf decoration, showcasing Borra's mastery of classical architecture. The carved cross-section reveals precise measurements and a harmonious blend of elements, including a fluted column, architrave, frieze, and relief sculpture. Every inch of this design exudes elegance and sophistication. It serves as a testament to Borra's exceptional skill in capturing architectural beauty through his artwork. The attention to detail is awe-inspiring; every curve and line meticulously crafted with utmost precision. As you gaze upon this remarkable piece from Bridgeman Images' collection, you can't help but be transported back in time to an era where such architectural wonders were revered.
