Description

This is a second edition (Gothic numeral top right corner) from Giovanni Battista Piranesi (Italian, Mogliano Veneto 1720–1778 Rome) rare Carceri d'invenzione (Imaginary Prisons) series. The frame is hand cut walnut from a bespoke London framer made in the 1970's but would look better in a double wash lined mount. The engraving is like all early genuine ones on laid paper (rag paper comes on later editions) with short margins. The technique used is etching with engraving, sulphur tint or open bite, burnishing. The ink used often has the brown tinge which with age becomes even I have NOT touched it. This item comes in as stupidly rare and lives happily within my shop. Due to price and age it is best viewed in person I can do more pics all taken behind glass I thought I had better start listing some good bits too!
