Piranesi’s Prints: An Architect’s Perspective 
Claude Armstrong, Architect

This talk will analyze Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s Vedute (Views), published beginning 1748, on view in Meant to Be Shared. The prints depict the monuments and engineering of Rome at a new, higher level of accuracy and visual sophistication, reflecting a scientific and painstakingly thorough survey of ancient construction.
