During the eighteenth century, Rome was both an important centre for Italian art and the focal point for the studies of most European artists; all were drawn by the city’s antique art, architecture, and statuary, as well as its Renaissance, Baroque, and eighteenth-century masterpieces. Exploring Rome: Piranesi and His Contemporaries is concerned with eighteenth-century artists, collectors, and antiquarians who, through their studies and explorations in Rome, created and spread a new vision of antiquity.
The exhibition comprises drawings, sketchbooks, prints, books, letters, and manuscripts from the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York, the CCA, and private collections in New York and Toronto.
Curated by Cara Dufour Denison and by Stephanie Wiles, Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, with Myra Nan Rosenfeld, CCA.
