image description
Piranesi was fascinated by the remnants of antiquity still visible in his native Italy. His detailed views of ancient Roman ruins were especially popular among Northern European visitors, who included Rome as a stop on the “Grand Tour.” As his prints circulated throughout Europe, they helped promote the neoclassical style, influencing artists like the English painter Joseph Francis Nollekens.
