Watercolor journey with the course Roman Architecture by the Yale University
I continue the stay-at-home travel Art + Roman Architecture + the city of Rome with Yale’s course Roman Architecture https://www.coursera.org/learn/roman-architecture. Roman Architecture. Introduction The urban Grid and Public Architecture.1-2
Pantheon is one of the greatest masterpieces of Roman Architecture with a very innovative structure. The building represents the power and glory of Rome itself and the Roman Architecture for the world. This is the greatest building ever conceived by man, a genius of the human mind and ability.
My painting for this session is about the Pantheon, with its extraordinary interior space that is shaped by light. Apparently it was the revolutionary transformation of the use of Roman cement and stone. The Pantheon is representative of Rome as a whole in its grandeur, scale and elegance, would you agree?
The eye of the Pantheon through the centuries has become a model for many buildings. Ancient architects were pouring the roman cement into a wooden model. Essentially they broke the inflexibility of belief from the Greek and Etruscan architects that any architectural buildings should be only straightforward and rectilinear, including roofs
