Details: This poster is of The Seventh Crusade Against Jerusalem, by Francesco Hayez. It shows the aftermath of a seized city.
Francesco Hayez (February 10, 1791 - December 21, 1882) was an Italian painter, the leading artist of Romanticism in mid-19th-century Milan, renowned for his grand historical paintings, political allegories and exceptionally fine portraits. Assessment of the career of Hayez is complicated by the fact that he often did not sign or date his works. Often the date indicated from the evidence is that at which the work was acquired or sold, not of its creation. Moreover he often painted the same compositions several times with minimal variations, or even with no variation. His early works show the influence of Ingres and the Nazarene movement. His later work participates in the Classical revival.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
