Piranesi, Giovanni Battista (Italian, 1720-1778), Veduta degli Avanzi del Tablino della Casa Aurea di Nerone [View of Remains of the Dining Room of the Golden House of Nero], mid to late 18th century, etching on laid paper, no watermark visible in the margins, impression 16.5 x 21.5 inches, full sheet 19.75 x 27.5 inches, unframed. A single plate from Vedute di Roma [Views of Rome], Piranesi's famous work, first printed in the late 1740s, showing Roman buildings, ruins and monuments, primarily marketed to European visitors on the Grand Tour. Provenance: from the collection of a retired librarian of art and architecture at Columbia University. In good antique condition, soft horizontal crease down the center, light staining in the margins; the sheet appears to have undergone a professional reduction of discoloration at some point.
