"Veduta di Campo Vaccino" - Foro Romano

Copper etching by Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778)

Published in "Vedute di Roma"

Hind 40. State III from VI. Rome, 1757

Original antique print 

From 17th to the 19th century, before grand style excavations, the suburban area of the Foro Romano, was called Campo Vaccio. It was indeed used as a cow pasture and for animal market. That is why Giovanni Battista Piranesi, one of the greatest  Roman architects and artists, gave this title to his impressive etching. Pranesi did this copper etching after his own design.

Good impression on hand-made paper. Vertical centerfold is slightly visible. There is a vertical, slightly visible crease (in the sky) on left side. It disappears where the etching begins in the upper buildings. Margins have a few spots and some soiling. There is a stronger stain in lower left margin, and mirrored on the lower right margin, visible from the reverse side. Crease in right margin 4 cm. not in image.
Basically this print's condition is much better than good.

Image with title: 40,5 x 54,5 cm (ca. 15.9 x 21.5")
