Antique chromolithograph of Ettore Forti painting titled Greeting the Victor depicting Romans on chariots
This is an antique chromolithograph of a painting by the Italian genre painter Ettore Forti depicting a scene of Romans riding horse drawn chariots while the public watch from the sides. The title of this painting is Greeting the Victor. It is plate signed E. Forti Roma and framed in an ornate wood and gesso frame of 38"x24" size. It has a glass cover and is quite heavy. Not much is known about this artist, but he was active in the late 19th and early 20th century. So, I think this particular chromolithograph is quite old. I have seen only a few other copies of this painting online. Here are some links to sites displaying various examples of his beautiful paintings depicting scenes of ancient Roman life and events - link 1, link 2, link 3.
