  • Rome



    Matthew Rice is a long-time observer and illustrator of cities, buildings and all those who inhabit them, with an uncanny ability to express the energy of a place through a few lines of ink and splashes of paint. In the first book in this sketchbook series, he explored the glittering canals of Venice: now he turns his attention to Rome, the Eternal City. Rome is a place where the ancient, the baroque and the modern clash, and this tension runs through Matthew’s paintings. In this guide, he makes sly juxtapositions of people and animals against the backdrop of the city’s architectural and artistic wonders, its ruins and its ristoranti.
