Stanza painting. Oil On Canvas. 1988. In Private Collection.

Artwork  by Stanza. 1988

This is a map I painted in 1988 now in a private collection.  One of a series of beautiful maps.  Oil on canvas.  Thought I  would post it up as I am off to the British  Library maps exhibition.  Maps, as this show makes plain, are art works. Maps as works of art, propaganda pieces, expressions of local pride, tools of indoctrination…

Magnificent Maps brings together 80 of the largest, most impressive and beautiful maps ever made, from 200 AD to the present day.
