Skilfully done! May I propose a theme for a future painting considering your skill at historical realism?

I can not find a single illustration whatsoever of depopulated Rome during the Middle Ages, or depopulated Constantinople after 1204, where the living city shrunk back within the walls and left a lot of crumbling ruins and giant monuments, among which agriculture and herding of cattle, swine, sheep and goats took place within the ruined area encircled by the city walls.

Not a single historical illustration of herdsmen, farmers, milkmaids or the like busy with rural activities within a landscape of urban decay. The image is such a striking one, that I'm surprised no artist through the centuries ever tackled it, if Google search is to be believed.

Be the first!
