G.B. Piranesi
John Wilton-Ely 303No Watermark is presentThis print is from the series \"Le Antichita Romane\" \"After over eight years of careful study and excavation Piranesi produced this four-volume work which swiftly established his reputation in Europe as the leading protagonist of Roman archaeology. More than other such antiquarian works, the 250 plates of the Antichita played a dominant role in conveying information, and Piranesi was to develop a whole new range of specialized illustarions in order to reveal aspects of antiquity which had hitherto been largely neglected. His aim, as with all his archaeological publications, was two-fold - to record the vanishing past for scholars and to inspire contemporary designers to emilate the achievements of the past.\" (John Wilton Ely pg 327)Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encourage … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Diet was by-passed and the office of Palatine of Hungary not filled after 1765; but the Empress sought to be good to all, including the serfs, in particular setting up schools and colleges all over the country, using the estates confiscated from the Jesuits.
