Giovanni Battista Piranesi
Suggested Reading



Piranesi
(Luigi Ficacci)
Faithfully summarizing his entire oeuvre, this is a wonderful introduction to the great architectural master etcher. Includes 168 of his best plates.

Piranesi : The Complete Etchings
(Luigi Ficacci, Giovanni Battista )
Today Piranesi's reputation rests as much on his definitive Vedute di Roma (views of Rome) as on his terrifyingly original Carceri d'Invenzione (inventive prisons.) So original, and so imbued with Piranesi's romantic feeling for architecture, these dramatic chiaroscuro images formed the mental picture of Rome for generations to follow.
