More About this Item

Description: Artist: ADOLPHE COSSARD (1870-1952) Size: 24 3/8 x 39 in./62 x 99 cm Imp. Lucien Serre, Paris As far back as the mid-1800s, Italy's King Vittorio Emanuele III already saw the wisdom and potential of creating a transportation line connecting the Piedmont region to Nice. After Nice was seceded to France in 1860, the plan became something of a dual-nation obsession. Four years later, the initial ties of what would become the PLM railway were being laid, while throughout the first half of the 20th century tunnel construction was taking place. It wasn't until October 30, 1928, after 78 years of planning, that the Nice-Cuneo line opened. Cossard does a spectacular job of recreating the rugged majesty of the area while simultaneously paying tribute to the technological marvel that has been newly introduced into the environment.
