This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Renowned as one of the finest printmakers of the eighteenth century, Giovanni Battista Piranesi is best known for his etched views of Rome and its antiquities, as well as for his highly influential suite of drawings entitled Carceri, or Imaginary Prisons. Trained as an architect, Piranesi revolutionized architecture and design through his combination of decorative elements and ornamental motifs from the Egyptian, Etruscan, Greek, and Roman styles; yet his work as the designer of interiors and furnishings has been largely uncelebrated. Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, Piranesi as Designer explores the far-reaching impact of Piranesi's modernist style on three centuries of architecture and design. 144 pages nearly 200 integrated color photographs
