About

Artist's proof, printed on antique watermarked paper, wide margins, representing an “antique vase in the Villa Albani” as pointed out in the higher note. Etching with good contrasts and sharp details, dedicated to “Reverendissimo Monsignor Gianmaria Riminaldi, uditore della Sacra Rota”. Signed on plate “Cavaliere Piranesi del. ed. inc.” on lower left corner. Good conditions, lightly worned paper, the paper is fold on center, a light ripple on high-right margin, some tiny marks, little holes on the higher margin due to the binding of the volume “vases and Candelabras”. Image Dimensions : 38 x 53.8 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.
