According to tradition, the Gens Iulia (namely that which Julius Caesar belonged to) directly descended from Venus, Goddess of Love. When Cleopatra was in Rome around 50 BC, she was a lover of Caesar and had a son by him.
Caesar carved a statue for Cleopatra, making her depicted as a young Venus, the beautiful "Esquiline Venus", which is now in Rome at the Capitoline Museums.
The characteristics of platinotype make it one of the best printing processes for the richness of tone and for its stability. Patented in London in 1873, it quickly spread in the photo print art due to its unique features. It is a completely manual technique and each copy can be considered an original.
