About the Item

Artist's proof, printed on antique watermarked paper, with wide margins, representing three antique vases. Etching with good contrasts and sharp details, dedicated to “Miledi Maria Fox”. Previous edition than the one shown by Ficacci’s catalogue, without signature and with some notes. Good conditions, lightly worn paper, normal folds, right side damaged and little holes on higher margin due to the binding of the volume “Vases and Candelabras”. Image Dimensions : 53 x 38.5 cm Undoubtedly Piranesi was one of the most important engravers in 18th century even if he was well-known as an architect and an archaeologist: the greatest engraver in the period from Rembrandt a Goya. The generations after him have continued to imagine the Ancient Rome as the artist has portrayed his magnificent in "Vedute". References: L.
