Architectural Paintings

While a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome, Steven Brooke produced a new photographic Views of Rome in the tradition of the 18th-century view painters and engravers.  Published by Rizzoli and widely praised, it was the first collection its kind in over 100 years.  Included among the 200 views were the best of modernist era Rome.  Inspired by this work, Steven has combined his study of the Russian Constructivist masters Chernikhov and Lissiztky with his appreciation for Rationalist Italian architecture to produce a series of bold, minimalist architectural paintings that capture the spirit and power of this dramatic architecture.
