Imago Terrae is pleased to be the distributor for the singular birds-eye-view townscape etchings of J. H. Aronson. Examples of these etchings are in major collections and museums in the U.S.A. And Europe including the Metropolitan museum print collection, The New York Public Library Print Collection and the Galleria degli Uffizi gabinetto del disegno. Aronson has lived and worked many years in Italy and is a fellow of the American Academy in Rome as well as a Guggenheim fellow.

Aronson developed his unique perspective in order to produce a single image of a town that had more information than a simple plan. The resulting image differs from that of a "fisheye" lens in that it is essentially a mosaic of many vignettes, and being a zenith perspective, has no top, bottom or side and can be viewed anyway desired; Basically an idea derived from primitive Japanese maps and also cubism - the simultaneity of many different view points.

These etchings are all printed by the artist on his own press on Arches paper and the colored ones are all individually rendered by the artist.
