Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Thyssen Museum.

Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Thyssen Museum.

The Italian’s artist’s work may seem at first glance like a selection of 14 of his very obscure and detailed engravings which the Thyssen has received from the Museo de Bellas Artes de Valencia.

Created in a feverish moment, the painter has recreated a convoluted world, dark and full of staircases.
