Reproduction print of a rare etching on copperplate, from the workshop of Giovanni Battista Piranesi and son. Originally published in Rome between 1773 and 1777 for Piranesi's "Vasi, Candelabri, Cippi y Sarcofagi.." They lend grandeur to any environment.

Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s dedication to and pursuit of Roman archaeology was acknowledged by his election as Honorary Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in London in 1757. His love of classical antiquity was reflected in his imaginative restoration when he found, restored and sold them, and his incorporation of elements from them into creations for his patrons and collectors. In 1766 Piranesi was awarded the Order of the Spur by Pope Clement XIII, and from then on he usually signed his work Cavalier Piranesi.
