        • Pirro Ligorio's Rare Map of Greece
          Mar. 31, 2018

          Pirro Ligorio's Rare Map of Greece

          Est: $20,000 - $25,000

          Vedrai diusi I termini di tutta la Grecia. Pirro Ligorio (c.1513/4-1583). Engraved map by Sebastiano di Ré. Rome: Michele Tramezzino, 1561. 18 3/4 x 27 inches sheet, ?? framed A VERY RARE AND IMPORTANT MAP OF GREECE. It was devised by the great antiquarian and architect Pirro Ligorio, who was then associated with the Rome workshop that Michele Tramezzino operated with his older brother Francesco. The map was completed while Ligorio was restoring various churches and villas for Pope Pius IV, having earlier been expelled from St.Peter's by an ill-tempered Michelangelo. Roberto Almagià referred to this map as "a very remarkable production", that presents Greece in a unique geographical form, epistemologically independent of other contemporary maps. The beautiful engraving by Sebastiano di Ré grants the viewer an Apollonian view of all Hellenistic lands from the Adriatic to Asia Minor. The heavily detailed perspective features the numerous mountains, towns and islands in which the theatre of Classical mythology was acted out. This map was copied by Gerard de Jode of Antwerp in his 1578 and 1593 maps of Greece. Karrow no, Tooley:1939 no.283, Woodward:1996 watermark 194, Zacharakis no.1368. Pirro Ligorio's minutely detailed, large-scale, erudite map of Greece was first published in 1561 by Rome-based publisher Michele Tramezzini. The map shows the entire Aegean world, encompassing a plethora of place names both ancient and modern. It stretches from the Adriatic coast in the west (with the heel of the Italian peninsula at far left) to Asia Minor (present-day western Turkey) in the east, and north from Constantinople (today Istanbul) at the entrance to the Black Sea, to Crete in the south. Ligorio's map was one of the most complete, exhaustive, and accurate maps of the region from the sixteenth century, and many later cartographers based their own maps of Greece upon it. In the 1570s, Abraham Ortelius, publisher of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum -- the first modern atlas -- included a map of Greece that was heavily dependent on Ligorio's work, and Gerard De Jode, publisher of the Speculum Orbis Terrarum, also used a very close copy of it. The map, which shows all of Greece and much of Asia Minor, was beautifully engraved by Sebastiano di Ré to show Ligorio's meticulous detail. Like the great majority of sixteenth-century Italian maps, this work was never meant to be colored, for it was thought that the addition of watercolor pigment would obscure the fine engraving -- a skill for which Italian craftsmen were particularly renowned. Pirro Ligorio was a brilliant and eccentric cartographer of the Renaissance. A polymath, he was also a learned antiquarian, architect, author, painter, and engineer. Ligorio was born in Naples around 1513 or 1514, and came to Rome around 1534 to further his artistic training. He found his true calling in the Eternal City as an investigator of Roman antiquities. His classical learning was considerable, and the maps he produced, like this one of Greece, often harmonize ancient and contemporary geographical knowledge. This map, for example, includes the names of ancient cities and sites, many of which were known only from ancient texts (most notably the geographical writings of Ptolemy and Strabo), alongside contemporary places that existed in Ligorio's lifetime. Unlike many sixteenth-century maps of Greece, Ligorio's map was not derivative but rather a work of considerable originality. Roberto Almagià, the foremost twentieth-century authority on Italian cartography, called it a "general map of ancient and modern Greece rich in toponyms and information… a very remarkable production." This particular example of Ligorio's map was included in an atlas issued by Antonio Lafreri, an entrepreneur who did not draft maps but instead operated as publisher and merchant. Lafreri had a prolific output of material with a particular emphasis on matter relating to Rome. In building his inventory he collected previously published plates as well as commissioning artists and engravers to produce new ones. One of Lafreri's major innovations was to assemble and bind collections of maps, focusing on works by the most noted contemporary cartographers. These volumes, each made to order for specific collector such that no two were alike, have therefore been termed composite atlases (or sometimes "Lafreri atlases," although other publishers also issued them). Many extremely rare maps have survived only because they were bound by Lafreri, and thereby protected from damaging light, moisture, and general neglect. Such is the case with this fine and rare example of Ligorio's map of Greece, which is in exceptional condition. Born Antoine Lafrère, in Besançon in Burgundy, France, Lafreri settled in the papal city around 1540. From 1553 to 1562, he worked in partnership with Antonio Salamanca, and for a brief time after the latter's death, his son Francesco Salamanca. In 1563, that partnership came to an end and Lafreri was left in control of the firm, which he built up to become the largest of the Rome map- and print-sellers and publishers of the sixteenth century. In a sense, then, this map represents a collaborative effort of Ligorio and Lafreri: two luminary figures in Italian sixteenth-century cartography. References: R.V.

Karrow no.51/5, Tooley:1939 no.403, Woodward:1996 watermark 194. Two very rare maps of southern Italy. The second map is centred on Naples, which was the native city of its creator, Pirro Ligorio. In addition to his interests in cartography, Ligorio was a painter, architect and antiquarian best known for his monumental work on Roman antiquities Dell' Antichità. He was also the victim of Michelangelo's mercurial temperament, having been dismissed from the project to complete St.Peter's in Rome, following a fierce argument. This vibrant and highly-detailed work, was the first in a planned series of regional maps of Italy. It was printed by Michele Tramezzino, who ambitiously straddled both of the key Italian cartographic centres; operating a shop in Rome with his older brother Francesco, and another in Venice. Ligorio's map of the region became the key influence for numerous subsequent maps, notably those by Ortelius, Gerard de Jode and Matthias Quad. LAFRERI SCHOOL (2)

          IBERIA - LIGORIO, PIRRO (c.1513/4-1583). Nova totius Hispaniae descriptio.Rome: Michele Tramezzino, 1559. Engraved map of Spain and Portugal by Sebastiano di Ré, 401 x 530mm, trimmed with original extended margins. (Some discolouration to centre and upper centre of map.) A very important map of Spain and Portugal devised by Pirro Ligorio, the highly talented polymath, widely known for his great work on Roman antiquities, Dell' Antichità, and for his altercation with the intemperate Michelangelo. This masterful engraving, by di Ré, elegantly frames the land in a maritime space traversed by rhumb lines. Highly influential and more accurate than Gastaldi's 1544 map of Spain, Ligorio's work became the map of record, copied numerous times by other eminent Italian cartographers. Both maps were printed by Michele Tramezzino. Karrow no.51/9, Tooley:1939 no.529 (2)
