Veduta del Tempio della Sibilla in Tivoli.
(1761) Framed etching of the Temple of the Sybil in Tivoli, Italy. Fifth and final state. This etching is part of Piranesi's Views (Vedute) series, which depicts the remains of once-great Roman architectural pieces. The grandeur of the temple is highlighted by the exquisite lighting, from the stark shadows cast on the twisting trees to the haze obscuring the background, all of which is rendered with Piranesi's expert skill. Printed below the image are a description of the temple's history and its inscription. Framed in olive and gold matting with a wooden frame. Paper tanned, otherwise fine. (Image area 17 by 25 inches; frame 24 1/2 by 33 1/2 inches).
