    I am doing a personal research on paintings, drawings and engravings concerning the archaeological site of Villa dei Gordiani and Tor de ‘Schiavi in Rome which numerous Italian and foreign artists have portrayed in their works. This is because I lived for 40 years near that place. In a year of work I discovered about 80 works that relate to that place and some are from Edward Lear, but the one you published today I did not know it and for this reason I am very happy and thank you.Francesco De Luca – Roma
