Excavations in Pompeii

Pompeii, Excavations in. Youth cleans up, cheerfully, resting, dreamily. There already is quite something unearthed, among which a bust and amphorae of most various sizes. And the earth goes in baskets to the dumpcart. And leaning against a column in the center the overseer, quite strategist. Toned wood engraving by monogramist C./G. K. after Ludwig Dill (Gernsbach, Baden, 1848 – Karlsruhe 1940) for Adolf Closs, Stuttgart. (1876.) Inscribed: within the subject C/G K / Dill Pompei 1874, otherwise typographically in German as above. 10⅛ × 7⅜ in (25.8 × 18.7 cm). – Brilliant in chiaroscuro, figure-rich-instructive, thematically rare-beautiful.
