Piranesi on the Page
Marquand Library of Art & Archaeology was pleased to contribute 7 publications to this unique exhibit in the Ellen and Leonard Milberg Gallery. For more information see the official website that includes many fully digitized books and links to video presentations by the curators.
Piranesi on the Page tells the story of the book as the centerpiece of Piranesi’s artistic production. What did these volumes mean to him, who did they bring into his world, and how can the process of making them be understood throughout his career? As the central thread that connects all spheres of his enormous ambition, Piranesi’s books reveal how the artist became the foremost printmaker in eighteenth-century Europe.
