When Giovanni Battista Piranesi was born in Venice, the city was considered the centre of the art of printing. Especially the copperplate engraving was realized here in a skill that was unparalleled. At the same time the art of the veduta reached its peak. This special form of landscape painting concentrated on city views that demanded a fine sense of perspective and space. Piranesi enjoyed a broad spectrum of artistic training and acquired a profound knowledge of architecture, literature and stage painting.

A visit to Rome changed the life of the artist. The Eternal City immediately captivated the young Piranesi. The architecture and especially the ruins fascinated the young Piranesi. Giovanni himself considered his architectural skills to be too limited to design buildings in Rome. Piranesi relied on his artistic skills and his talent for implementing perspective and illusion. Rome experienced the first phases of tourism and quite a few guests wanted to take a souvenir home. Views of the city were popular and could give the impression of the journey at home. Piranesi acquired the art of copperplate printing and began to make vedute. The first motives were famous buildings of Rome. Piranesi stood out from the mass of artists. With the architect's eye he captured buildings in exact proportion. His works do not show any impression, they are precise studies of the art of architecture, and his brushstroke, restless and lively from the beginning, stands out from the mass of Roman artists. Piranesi devoted himself increasingly to the drawing of Capriccios. These were works that deliberately broke the rules and were in contradiction with the current artistic trends of an epoch.

The Carceri cycle brought Giovanni Battista Piranesi the deserved fame. The depiction of dungeons is one of the most influential works of graphic art. Piranesi published a fourteen-part etching series, which the artist revised again in later years. In the second version Piranesi used strong chiaroscuro contrasts and created an eerie and threatening atmosphere. Characteristic for the interior views of the prisons are walls, arches, vaults and pillars, which show a construction that is physically impossible. Distorted perspectives and shifted vanishing points let the eye of the viewer search and lead it into the depths of the graphic. The work of M.C. Escher would be unthinkable without Piranesi's preliminary work. The desire to grasp the construction is sprouting and cannot be fulfilled. Critics see the stylistic devices as creating helplessness and the feeling of surrendering oneself. At the same time, the artist is directed against the prevailing longing for beauty and turns away from religious transfiguration. Giovanni Battista Piranesi was an artist who paved the way for the Age of Enlightenment and later Romanticism. © Meisterdrucke
