When Giovanni Battista Piranesi was born in Venice, the city was considered the center of the art of printing. The copper engraving in particular was implemented here in an artistry that was second to none. At the same time, the art of vedute reached its peak. This particular form of landscape painting focused on cityscapes that required a keen sense of perspective and space. Piranesi enjoyed a wide range of artistic training and gained in-depth knowledge of architecture, literature and stage painting.

A visit to Rome changed the artist's life. The Eternal City immediately captivated the young Piranesi. The architecture and especially the ruins fascinate the young Piranesi. Giovanni himself assessed his architectural skill as too low to design buildings in Rome. Piranesi relied on his artistic skill and his talent to implement perspective and illusion. Rome experienced the first phases of tourism and quite a few guests wished to take a souvenir home with them. Cityscapes were popular and gave the impression of the trip at home. Piranesi learned the art of copperplate printing and began to make vedute. The first motifs were famous buildings in Rome. Piranesi stood out from the crowd of artists. With the architect's eye, he captured buildings in precise proportions. His works show no impression, they are precise studies of architecture; his brushstroke, restless and lively from the start, stands out from the mass of Roman artists. Piranesi increasingly devoted himself to drawing Capriccios. Works with deliberate violation of the rules and which contradicted the common art movements of an epoch.

The Carceri cycle brought Giovanni Battista Piranesi the fame it deserves. The depiction of dungeons is one of the most influential works in print graphics. Piranesi published a fourteen-part etching series, which the artist revised in later years. In the second version, Piranesi relied on strong light-dark contrasts and created an eerie and threatening mood. The interior of the prisons is characterized by walls, arches, vaults and pillars that show a structure that is physically impossible. Distorted perspectives and shifted vanishing points make the eye of the beholder search and lead him into the depths of the graphic. MC Escher's work would be unthinkable without Piranesi's preparatory work. The desire to grasp the construction grows and cannot be fulfilled. Critics see the stylistic means as creating helplessness and the feeling of being handed over. At the same time, the artist turns against the prevailing longing for beauty and turns away from religious transfiguration. Giovanni Battista Piranesi was an artist who pioneered the Age of Enlightenment and later Romanticism. © Meisterdrucke
