Reimagining Rome: Piranesi’s Vision and Legacy

This lecture has been postponed until further notice.

The artist Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) spent his career studying, illustrating, and imagining the Eternal City of Rome. His dramatic depictions of monuments and ruins were so impressive that Grand Tourists who visited the city after seeing them were sometimes disappointed by the reality they found. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Fantastic Ruins: Etchings by Giovanni Battista Piranesi, this lecture will explore Piranesi’s vision, world, and legacy.

Presented by Maggie North, Acting Curator of Art, Springfield Museums
