Piranesi As Designer At the root of this eclecticism, writes his biographer John Wilton-Ely, la. .

Piranesi As Designer. A fresh look at the eighteenth century artist and architect giambattista piranesi. By Amanda Kolson Hurley. As early as his formative years in Venice, Piranesi was starting to develop an idiosyncratic, profusely Baroque style as a rebuke to the current fashion for ornamental restraint. In his designs for side tables and chimneypieces, candelabra and church altars, fantastic capricci emerge from mingled Roman, Greek, Etruscan, and Egyptian motifs. At the root of this eclecticism, writes his biographer John Wilton-Ely, lay Piranesi's belief in the prerogative of the designer's imagination.

Piranesi's name is usually connected with intriguing and mysterious etchings, but Giambattisa Piranesi (1720-1778) was also influential as an architect and decorative arts designer. This book examines his work, theories, and impact on the design of architecture and the decorative arts, and it is written by a widely recognized authority on Piranesi. This book, although short, is an in-depth study of Piranesi and his work in these fields, with discussions of his background and the influences on him, as well as how his designs evolved and became influential throughout Britain and Europe. As only one of Piranesi's architectural designs was ever actually executed, his significance as an architect ultimately rests on his extensive graphic production and his polemical publications, both of which are shown in this book to have been tremendously influential. This volume is copublished with The Pierpont Morgan Library New York, using many of its outstanding collection of Piranesi drawings and etchings.

Piranesi is best remembered for his truly staggering output of detailed architectural etchings, primarily of Roman structure, ancient and recent. His work as an architect and designer pales in comparison. Professor Wilton-Ely is to be commended for taking on the rather thankless task of creating a decent book from rather paltry gleanings. As the book stands, Wilton-Ely covers virtually every aspect of his topic in a thorough manner. The text is profusely illustrated with black-and-white illustrations.
