Montblanc Patron Of Art Hommage À Scipione Borghese Limited Edition 4810 Fountain Pen
The 2017 Patron of Art honours Scipione Borghese, an Italian Cardinal, art collector as well as patron of the arts. A member of the Borghese family, he was the patron of the painter Caravaggio and the artist Bernini. His legacy is the establishment of the art collection at the Villa Borghese in Rome, which serves as a monument to Roman interior decoration at its most extravagant and the finest collections of Baroque sculpture anywhere in the world.
The inspiration for the granite barrel of the Montblanc Patron Of Art Hommage À Scipione Borghese Limited Edition 4810 Fountain Pen is the multi-coloured marble floor in the Galleria Borghese. The ornaments and pattern on the cap and around the cone of this edition are inspired by antique motifs seen on the famous Borghese Vase. In addition, the artistically crafted clip, crowned by a smoky quartz, brings to mind the branches of the colossal old trees of the landscaped garden at Villa Borghese. The cap top is shaped like a cardinal’s hat, while the cone top, made of carneol bears a portrait of Borghese. The 18k gold nib is is engraved with the Borghese family coat of arms.
