Large etching of a marble vase - Giovanni Battista Piranese (1720-1778)

Etching by Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778), showing a large marble vase. Original by Piranesi after his own drawing, bundled in Vasi Candelabri Cippi Sarcofagi Tripodi Lucerne ed Ornamenti Antichi, first published around 1776-1778 in Rome and printed from 1807-1835 in Paris. Numbered 37 in right upper corner.

Vasi Candelabri Cippiy Sarcofagi Tripodi Lucerne ed Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, and other antiquities excavated and made in Italy in the 18th century. At first, the prints were separately issued and sold by Piranesi and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, around 1778.
