Description:
This is a superlative 18th century engraving of a Roman fountain created by Giovanni Battista Piranesi. G.B. Piranesi was the most renown engraver of the 18th century. His Vedutte di Roma is his most famous work, but he created many other commissions. This particular folio is unsual in that it depicts a water element as opposed to the more common ruins views. This folio was engraved as authorized by Giovanni Battista and is not a restrike--it is either a 1st or 2nd edition. The impressed image measures 24.25" x 16". The vintage frame dates to the early 20th century; the engraving would benefit from new matting and framing, but it is fine as is. The folio is in very good condition with minor discoloration due to its age--250 years and exposure.  Please use the contact link at lower left to request additional information, photos and trade/retail pricing.
