An Italian Journey Limited Edition

This jewel-like volume charts Anne Desmet RA's envy-inducing grand tour of Italy. Desmet's colourful and atmospheric sketches in pen, wash and watercolour transport the viewer from the enchanting cityscapes of Rome and Venice to the beautiful landscapes of Sicily and Umbria. Each book has been signed and numbered by the artist and comes beautifully packaged in a bespoke box. One of a special edition of 40, this wonderfully presented book also comes with a signed limited edition print of San Severino Marche, created exclusively for the Royal Academy of Arts.
