Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-78)

 

Venetian born Giovanni Battista Piranesi  was raised in Rome, is best known for highly-charged, atmospheric representations of antiquity in his etchings. His work as a printmaker, whether exploring Roman architecture or displaying flights of spatial fancy in the celebrated Carceri (Prisons) series, make him probably the most collected printmaker of the eighteenth century.
