Rome Sketchbook transports the reader to the magnificent centre of ancient Europe, the home of breathtaking cityscapes and inspiring architecture such as the Trevi Fountain and St. Peter’s Basilica. Inspired by this hub of art and historical heritage, Fabrice Moireau, the artist behind some of the other books in this acclaimed series – covering cities such as Paris, Venice and Amsterdam – presents a timeless collection of watercolour paintings and sketches that will be equally delightful to those already familiar with the city as well as visitors discovering it for the very first time. From glorious monuments to intimate street scenes, Moireau's deft brushstrokes beautifully capture the atmosphere of this eclectic, romantic and vibrant Italian capital.
Fabrice Moireau is a seasoned traveller who frequently brings back from his journeys sketchbooks that are valuable cultural and ethnographic records in themselves. He is particularly interested in the world’s architectural heritage, and in plants and gardens. In his watercolour paintings Moireau seeks to illustrate his fascination with streets and cityscapes by subtly playing with light and shadows.
Moireau is a graduate of the renowned École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art in Paris. The other titles in the series by the same artist include Paris Sketchbook, Venice Sketchbook, Loire Valley Sketchbook and Rooftops of Paris, also published by Editions Didier Millet.
