PIRANESI - Clocks

Giovanni Battista Piranesi ( 1720-1778), Italian architect, engraver, archeologist of proportion, is widely known as the creator of the famous series: ãVedute di Roma", those striking, imperial folio size and incomperable views of Rome. But Piranesi's oeuvre is a lot wider. Have a look at these excellent etchings of clocks.

The series we show here, come from Piranesi's ãDiverse Maniere d'adornare i cammini ed ogni altra parte degli edifizi desunte dall'archittetura Egizia, Etrusca e Greca con un Ragionamento Apologetico in defesa dell'Archittetura Egizia, e Toscana, opera del Cavaliere Giambattista Piranesi architteto".

(Divers Ways of ornamenting chimney-pieces and all other parts of houses taken from Egyptian, Etruscan, and Grecian architecture with an Apologia in defense of Egyptian and Tuscan architecture, the work of Cavaliere Giambattista Piranesi.)

Copper etchings with wide margins. Rome, 1769

Individual image size given with description

Sheet size for all of these: ca 55 x 38 cm (ca. 21.5 x 15")
