Georg Christoph Eimmart II’s etching, “Im(peratoris) Titi Judaicus Triumphus”, c.1680

Georg Christoph Eimmart II (aka Georg Christoph Eimart II) (1638–1705)—pupil of Jacob von Sandrart and an illustrator for Von Sandrart.

Note that ( showcases a variation of this print by Pietro Santi Bartoli (1635–1700) and a comparison of the two prints is interesting: and

“Im(peratoris) Titi Judaicus Triumphus”, c.1680, after a relief on the Arch of Titus in Rome, illustration (plate “FF”) to Joachim von Sandrart’s (aka Jakob von Sandrart) (1630–1708) “L'Academia Todesca della Architectura, Scultura et Pittura, Oder Teutsche Academie der Edlen Bau-Bild- und Mahlerey-Künste …”, vol. 5, published in Nuremburg, inserted with other plates between pages 198 and 199. (BM offers details of this publication:

Etching on laid paper with wide margins laid onto a support sheet, inscribed below the platemark in brown ink by an old hand.

Size: (sheet trimmed slightly unevenly) 27.8 x 42.2 cm; (plate) 22 x 39.5 cm; (image borderline) 20.5 x 38.5 cm.

Numbered and lettered in plate: (upper left) “2” and “1”; (upper right) “3” and F F.”; (below the image borderline at centre) “IM. TITI JUDAICUS TRIUMPHUS.”

Condition: a strong early impression (based on the quality of line showing no sign of wear to the printing plate) with reasonably wide margins and a flattened centrefold (as published) laid onto a support of archival (millennium quality) washi paper. The sheet has hand-written brown ink notations (faded) and pencil numbers in the margin by an old hand; otherwise, the sheet is in a good condition with no significant stains or foxing.  

I am selling this finely executed interpretation of a bas relief from the Arch of Titus in Rome showing the Goddess of Victory holding a laurel wreath over the head of Titus while a team of four horses bedecked with jewelled necklaces with suspended crescent moons pull the emperor’s chariot in a procession, for AU$262 (currently US$175.12/EUR158.45/GBP141.61 at the time of this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.

If you are interested in purchasing this strong etching that was executed (perhaps interestingly) a few decades after Johannes (Jan) Vermeer put down his brushes after completing his “Girl with a Pearl Earring”, please contact me ( and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
