Piranesi by Gregoire Dupond

Above, one of the key elements of the exhibition ‘The Art of Piranesi: architect, engraver, antiquarian, vedutista, designer’, a 12 minute animation of Piranesi’s Carceri series made by Gregoire Dupond.
This series of 16 visionary images, originally etched by Piranesi when in his late 20’s, shows the workings of his imagination, merging his architectural ambitions with his obsessive interest in antiquity. Watching Gregoire Dupond’s animation is literally like entering Piranesi’s mind.
