Etching and aquatint in full color representing the symbolic 21st arrondissement of Paris. Entitled"Hommage à Rodin", it depicts Le Baiser du sculpteur, Paolo and Francesca from the Divine Comedy embracing for the first time, in black line on a cloudy night background. Signed in pencil by Orfeo TAMBURI (1910-1994), it was published by Il Cigno in Rome between 1979 and 1981, and stamped in the lower right-hand corner of the carton. It is a limited edition of 130 copies on Pescia paper. The print is part of the Paris 20+1 print collection, which celebrates the beauty of the City of Light.

Orfeo TAMBURI is an Italian painter and printmaker known for his portraits of urban life. Influenced by Cézanne, he has a passion for etching and prints with warm chromatic intonations and broad lines. In the 1960s, he was hired by FORTUNE magazine to paint portraits of American cities. He moved to Paris in 1971, illustrating the capital as it changed with the seasons. That same year, he was awarded the Gold Medal for Cultural Merit by the Italian President.
