      “Piranesi was as savage as Salvator Rosa, fierce as Michelangelo, and exuberant as Rubens he has imagined scenes that would startle geometry and exhaust the Indies to realize.” —Horace Walpole One of the greatest architectural artists of all time, and certainly the most famous copper engraver of the 18th century, Giovanni Battista Piranesi () is best known for his Reviews:   Art history and business double major Hannah Middlebrook uses a magnifying glass to examine the details in one of Giovanni Piranesi’s etchings in “Le Antichità Romane,” a rare four-volume set recently acquired by Emory University.

    Giovanni Battista Piranesi () one of the greatest printmakers of the eighteenth century, soon after his arrival in Rome in apprenticed himself to the medium of etching at his master, Giuseppe Vasi. The knowledge of ancient building methods demonstrated by Piranesi's archaeological prints in his Antichità Romane of won him election to the Society of Antiquarians of London.   Piranesi's etchings (which I love) are moody and atmospheric. I was hoping for a book which captured the force of the originals. Here, Taschen have printed as many of the etchings as humanly possible in a book which is, though thick, not very large. The result is that the prints are crammed in, too small, and one can neither see the detail nor Reviews:

Like Piranesi, Ricci lived in Venice, and was much influenced by the city’s artistic scene (before having to flee when he murdered a gondolier). The shimmering, uneven lines of his etchings, mirroring the reflected light characteristic of Venice, are easily seen in the slightly later etched works of Piranesi.
