DESCRIPTION:

The two photographs are mounted back to back. Note the figure in the image of the Villa Albani. Anderson is known to have photographed both locations. Large sized prints. Villa Albani was built by Carlo Marchionni for Cardinal Alessandro Albani, nephew of Pope Clemens XI. Here the Cardinal gathered a celebrated collection of classical sculpture which was ordered by J. J. Winckelmann in 1765. Financial needs, ravages by Napoleon, upturns of life forced the Albani to sell their villa to the Chigi, who eventually sold it to the Torlonia (the most affluent family of 19th-century Rome) to whom the villa still belongs. The Villa Doria Pamphili is a 17th-century villa with what is today the largest landscaped public park in Rome. It is located in the quarter of Monteverde, on the Gianicolo (or the Roman Janiculum). Both are subjects that are somewhat scarce to find.
