    The present works by Hungarian artist Antonietta Brandeis are exquisite examples of this unique artist's talent. With great attention to detail and contained precision, Brandeis encapsules the beauty and light of the most famous Italian monuments. These delicate paintings have an almost jewel-like quality that appealed to travellers on the Grand tour looking to take home a souvenir of the places visited.
