Additional Information about the Print

Included in the Fine Art Society Summer mixed show of etchings 1922. Also included in the FAS one-man Walcot show in 1924. Illustrated in the Studio ‘Masters of Etching’ series, the 1927 volume on Walcot, written by Malcolm Salaman.

Only a few ruins, from which Walcot has dreamed this image, remain of the once magnificent and luxurious villa and gardens which the Roman historian Sallust built on the Quirinal and which became the imperial residence of Nerva, Vespasion and Aurelian. After an infamous political career Sallust retired to his villa and wrote his famous histories.
