A new exploration of Piranesi‰۪s work as a draftsman, published to coincide with an exhibition at the British Museum.The Venetian-born artist Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720‰ÛÒ1778) is best known for his dramatic etchings of the architecture and antiquities of his adopted home city of Rome and for his extraordinary flights of spatial fancy, such asåÊLe CarceriåÊ(‰ÛÏPrisons‰۝).Published to coincide with an exhibition at the British Museum, this volume explores Piranesi‰۪s celebrated skill as a draftsman. While many studies are concerned with Piranesi‰۪s activities as a printmaker, this beautifully illustrated book examines new dimensions of his art by focusing on his drawings. Curator and author Sarah Vowles establishes a clear relationship between his drawings and prints, discusses the involvement of studio hands in his late works, and examines how his style as a draftsman evolved.Piranesi DrawingsåÊreveals the quality and lasting impact of the pen and chalk studies by a remarkably talented draftsman, as demonstrated by the superb collection at the British Museum.100 color illustrations
