Behind the pseudonym of Lor Dethal lies Nemanja Torlak, a writer for Widewalls intrigued and moved by diversity in art and in the lives of those who create it. It is often the unexpected that come forth and surprise us, and art is a world that allows it and makes it possible. David beats the Goliath daily, and writing about it is a pleasure.

Although he started as a student of painting, Pietro Santi Bartoli switched to what he truly loved doing, and it was engraving. Engraving many Roman monuments, he later also produced drawings as well as other chiefly etched plates.
