Giovanni Battista Piranesi was a leading Italian printmaker in the 18th century. An ardent lover of Roman architecture, Piranesi produced many etchings of the city, from prisons to architectural ruins. He helped pioneer the rediscovery of Roman remains and was a key figure in the development of the Neoclassical style. The upcoming April Eclectic Auction, presented by Garth’s Auctioneers & Appraisers, will offer two prints of Rome by Piranesi. They show the Trevi Fountain and the Roman Capitol, respectively.
A Gibson Les Paul Deluxe guitar will also be highlighted in this auction. Named after the jazz guitarist and inventor Les Paul, this piece was created to compete with Fender’s Telecaster. The available piece has a left-handed gold top. Also offered is a John Roger sculpture showing a group of people playing checkers. Titled Checkers Up At The Barn, the artist’s wife served as a model for the woman watching the game. Browse the full catalog for this sale and register to bid on Invaluable.
