Giovanni Battista Piranesi Art

Italian, 1720-1778
Piranesi was born in Venice in 1720 and died in Rome in 1778. He was the son of a stone mason and was trained as an architect. After a slow start he eventually achieved great success as an architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer. His mission was to glorify the architecture of ancient Rome through his engravings and etchings. His highly dramatized prints often depict imaginary interiors and frequently include figures in mysterious activities, who are dwarfed by the magnitude of their monumental surroundings. Piranesi's style greatly influenced the neoclassical art movement of the late 18th century. His dramatic scenes inspired generations of set designers, as well as artists, architects and writers. His prints have continued to increase in value to institutions and collectors.

Pianta di Roma e del Campo Marzo - Etching by G.B. Piranesi - 1774
By Giovanni Battista Piranesi
Located in Roma, IT
Pianta di Roma e del Campo Marzo is a very big dimensions etching and burin with fresh impression on paper, realized around 1774 by Giovan Battista Piranesi. It is realized on three joined sheets of thick laid paper. In very good condition except for some signs of the time and a usual and diffused yellowing of the paper and usual folds of the paper. Engraved title in Italian: (Plan of Rome and the Campus Martius). Dedication: To Clement XIIII Pontifex Maximus Patron of the Fine Arts, G.B. Piranesi Architect. The plates are still preserved at the Calcografia dell’Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica in Rome, in the order specified by the Calcographie Piranesi in the Paris editions, following the first title page of Tomo I of the Vedute di Roma, marked by the numbers 683-685. The dating The dating of the work is complex: In the 1792 the Francesco Piranesi's catalog, son of the author, assigned the artwork to 1778, a date which, although very late - the author dies. Really on November 9 of that year - is accepted by Focillon and Hind. This dating, however, is certainly based on an error, because in the Warning at the top of the map, the author refers to the "approval" that designed to show the Sanctity of N. Mister Pope CLEMENT XIV happily reigning", for which the work can not be later than 1774. In support of this dating, it is a sample of the Catalog of Works, described by Scott, which contains three handwritten entries for three Views of Rome dating back to 1774, and indicates that the map was already available. Thus the most likely date for this plan is c. 1774, on the basis of the dedication to the ruling pope, who died in September that year, and because it is mentioned for the first time in a state of the Catalogo inciso, itself datable to 1774, as being included in the collection of the Vedute di Roma. The numbers positioned in front of the monuments in the 4 columns of indices under the plan refer to the main sites illustrated in the Antichità Romane, Della Magnificenza, Campo Marzio. "Plan of Rome and Campo Marzo" The "Plan of Rome and Campo Marzo" belongs to the peak of Piranesi's career. Born from the need to offer a reference plant that accompanied the more than 100 tables...
