Le Pallottole by Carlo Lasinio

This is one of the oldest pieces that I own. The artist was Carlo Lasinio from Italy. This etching with hand coloring was made in 1790. The etching is of gentleman playing bocce ball. It was a favorite of gentleman. Even today it is third in polarity in the world. The gentleman are dressed as aristocrats, with their sleeves rolled up as they get into the game. I love how the characters are so involved in the game. It really is a fun game!
