Representations of Architecture

About

A category that includes images of buildings (in paintings and photographs) as well as models and sculptures of buildings. Some of the earliest known depictions of architecture are frescoes in an aristocratic house in Boscoreale, Italy, from the 1st century BC that mimic marble columns and other architectural elements. The advent of photography offered countless new possibilities for documenting the built environment, and indeed some photographers have created images of architectural masterpieces as iconic as the buildings themselves.
