The Morgan Library & Museum is pleased to present Sublime Ideas: Drawings by Giovanni Battista Piranesi, opening March 10, 2023, and on view through June 4, 2023. The Morgan holds the largest and most important collection of drawings by Giovanni Battista Piranesi (Italian, 1720–1778), nearly 150 works that encompass almost every type of study that he made: architectural fantasies, studies for prints, measured design drawings, sketches for a range of decorative objects, a variety of figural drawings, and views of Rome and Pompeii. With highlights from the Morgan’s collection joined by select works from private collections, this exhibition will be the most comprehensive look at Piranesi’s drawings in more than a generation.
