Description

Fiche de vente de ce petit dessin par le vendeur :
Beautiful original painting by Ferdinando Tacconi illustrating The sacking and looting of Thebes by the Assyrians in 663 BC.
The panel was published on the back page of issue 99 of the comic Look & Learn, 7th December 1963, and measures 112mm x 85mm.
Tacconi uses both his blockier expressive style for the buildings and landscape and contrasts these with his fabulous soft washes and striking colours of the flames and smoke.
