Funded in part by a Humanities Council Magic Grant, “Piranesi on the Page” tells the story of how Giovanni Battista Piranesi, the foremost printmaker in 18th-century Europe, made the book the center of his artistic production. The exhibition is open in the Ellen and Leonard Milberg Gallery, located in the Firestone Library lobby, now through Dec. 5, 2021.

The exhibition is curated by Heather Hyde Minor, professor, University of Notre Dame, and Carolyn Yerkes, associate professor, Princeton University. “Piranesi Unbound,” a book associated with the exhibition written by the curators, is available from the Princeton University Press.

Open to Princeton University faculty, students, and staff with access to campus buildings daily noon to 6 p.m. Open to the public via reservation.

Read the full story and learn more about visiting the exhibition on the Princeton University Library website.
