Giovan Battista Pitanesi had a son, Francesco, who was also an engraver. Often the works of the two masters are confused to the extent that they become one. The commercial value of the two artists is almost the same as well.
This engraving is attributed by some scholars to the father, while by others to the son. If it were the son's, it would date back to 1770.
Piranesi the elder, i.e. Giovan Battista, made large engravings. Small ones are a rarity in his production and infrequent on the market.
The engraving for sale was made by Giovan Battusta Piranesi around 1750 and is a rarity.
Excellent state of preservation, complete with complimentary frame.
