Description:
With a dynamic composition, bold lighting and dramatic presentation, this print from Piranesi’’’’s Vedute brings life to the past. This popular series by the artist shaped European conceptions to such an extent that Goethe, who had come to know Rome through Piranesi's prints, was somewhat disappointed on his first encounter with the real thing. Executed in 1750, this etching on laid paper by Giovanni Battista Piranesi is signed in the lower right. The plate measures 15 ¼ x 21 ½ inches, and the sheet measures 20 ⅗ x 28 ½ inches. It has full margins and is matted. Hinged to mat, toning around the edges consistent with age, handling crease in lower center margin. Otherwise appears in basic good condition with no evidence of tears or repairs. Giovanni Battista Piranesi (Italian, 1720-1778) Known as one of the greatest printmakers of the 18th century, Giovanni Battista Piranesi always considered himself an architect. Born in Venice as the son of a stonemason and master builder, Piranesi studied stage design and perspective construction. In 1740, he traveled to Rome and apprenticed himself to Giuseppe Vasi, the foremost producer of etched views of Rome which often sold to tourists and pilgrims. Piranesi quickly mastered the art of etching and busied himself designing fantastic complexes of buildings that could only exist in dreams. In 1747, the artist began his Vedute di Roma (Views of Rome) series for which he is best known. He continued to produce plates for this series until the year of his death in 1778.
