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 city maps.  Oil on canvas.  Thought I  would post it up as I am off to research the maps at the  British  Library.   Maps as works of art, propaganda pieces, expressions of local pride, tools of indoctrination…the form the imagination at to how we express ourselves on the landscape
