Giovanni Battista Passeri Etruscan Vases 1775

Giovanni Battista Passeri (d1679). was born in Rome and came to be the antiquary to the Grand Duke of Tuscany. He wrote many treatises touting Etruscan culture to be far superior to his own; this belief was the inspiration for this collection of vase engravings. Many of Passeri's drawings and paintings are in Museums around the world including the National Gallery of Ireland and the British Museum. Passeri's studied under Domenichino a famous Italian Baroque painter.

These superb engravings are from an influential three volume publication illustrating 249 vases from important collections all over Italy. Many of these vases were housed in the Galleria Clementina of the Vatican Library. Sadly, many of the vases illustrated in this work have been lost, making this Italian vase collection by Passeri not just beautiful, but illustrations of lost artifacts gone forever.
