Piranesi - Speaking Ruins

The great Italian graphic master Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720–78) did not originally plan to become a professional artist. He initially studied to be an architect before moving on to graphic art. Piranesi’s wide-ranging education, curious nature and powerful imagination, combined with his technical skill in graphics, led to unprecedented results. Piranesi created completely new visions of familiar sites in Rome – as well as a new way to depict landscapes.
Piranesi’s oeuvre includes more than 1,000 graphic works. His best-known graphic series are Vedute di Roma and Carceri d’invenzione. Both series are represented in this exhibition, which includes 16 graphic prints from the Sinebrychoff Art Museum’s collections.
