Additional Information about the Print

The Villa Capra, known as “La Rotonda”, is one of the most celebrated Palladian villas of the Veneto. Set on a hilltop outside of Vicenza, it is completely symmetrical, with four identical facades.

Begun in 1567, it would inspire many subsequent buildings, and was itself inspired by the Pantheon in Rome.

Walcot responded to the historical romance of the building and etched a coach and horses arriving at the entrance.
