Zadar – Eternal inspiration for artists

Scroll down to content

Zadar, it’s numerous monuments and great spaces, was an inspiration for artists from the earliest antiquity. Just recently I have found this amazing, original woodblock engraving (print on paper) dated C 1890. This is from a publication on the Mediterranean . The print  has been hand colored in watercolorIt is in excellent clean condition on good art paper.It has a thine white card backing. It measures approx 31cm x 23 cm.

Charlie W. Wyllie - Zadar, Capital of Dalmatia, Porta di Fosse

This wonderful engraving was done by British artist Charles William Wyllie (1853-1923)
It depicts the late 19th century scene in front of the main land gates to Zadar showing merchants and sailors in this small, wonderfully protective harbor. Fosa is now very different but maybe even prettier than depicted here.

I got it on eBay for 20 USD… pretty good 🙂
