Piranesi and his Museum
(1000 items available)
The development or change of styles is usually considered as a process directed by persons: the artist, the patron, and sometimes intended audience or public. This book offers a different perspective on style formation, taking as a starting point the presence and agency of artefacts. The laboratory for this investigation is Piranesi's Museo, the artefacts that were created there, and their biographies.
