Re-canvas of 134 cm by 73 cm
Spectacular old frame of 152 cm by 92 cm.

This superb painting offers us a scene of the entrance to the port of Rome in the 18th century. At this time, we can still see vestiges of the ancient port with these fortifications on the left of the composition. At the top of the right tower the inscription SPQR, Senatus populusque Romanus, motto in Latin which means "The senate and the Roman people", emblem of the Roman republic and by tradition of the city of Rome. The scene is animated by numerous characters who are busy, some of them building a ship, while two superb ships from the United Provinces are anchored in the harbor. Our painting benefits from a superb gilded wood frame with silver highlights.

Adriaen Manglard (1695-1760)

He was trained in his hometown by his godfather Adriaen van der Kabel. Adrien Manglard moved to Rome in 1715. The artist spent his life there and made his entire career there. It is inspired by the works of Claude Gelée and Gaspard Dughet. On May 27, 1734, he was admitted to the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture. Two years later, on November 26, 1736, he was accepted as an academician as a "marine painter", which gave him the right to attend all the weekly meetings of the academy. He exhibited for the first time in 1736 in a “collection” of S. Giovanni Decollato. He became very popular and received orders from many great families of the time in Rome including the Rospigliosi, Colonna and Pamphili families and even from Philippe de Bourbon, Duke of Parma. In 1757, the latter ordered one hundred paintings of landscapes and coastal views from him for his palaces in Parma and Colorno. His works are, even today, easier to find in Italy than in France. He died in 1760 in Rome, famous but forgotten. Adrien Manglard dies without a known heir. This is why, on September 10, the following announcement appeared in Les Posteres de Lyon: “Sr Manglard, painter, native of Lyon, recently died in Rome, where he had been established for a long time. The French Consul in that country would like those of his parents who have the right to his inheritance to make themselves known.
