Sizable gold and micromosaic brooch. The oval micromosaic is set in a black glass plate that is inserted into gold frame. This micromosaic features a theme rarely addressed by Roman mosaic artists. This landscape featuring a tree near a river is reminiscent of the arcadien or capricii landscapes painted by Claude Lorrain.
This type of micromosaic landscape was developed beginning at the end of the 18th century.
