    Roman antiquities, Giovanni Battista Piranesi published c1807

    Born in Mogliano close to Venice, Piranesi, although trained as an architect became famous as an engraver, and archaeologist. Moving in 1740 to Rome, a lack of architectural commissions led him to develop etching skills and collaborating with pupils of the French Academy in Rome he produced a series of views of the city. These early works, Prima parte di Architettura e Prospettive (1743), followed in 1745 by Varie Vedute di Roma Antica e Moderna were produced during the era of the Grand Tour; when noblemen in the 18th century, completed their education with a period of European travel. This so-called Grand Tour could last from a few months to many years. At this time most ancient monuments in Rome were abandoned in fields and gardens. Piranesi's precise observational skills allowed him to preserve them in some way with his engravings. A third of the monuments in Piranesi's engravings have now disappeared, and many had the stucco and surfacing stolen. With the publication in 1756 of Le Antichità Romane there was immediate international success and Piranesi was elected a member of the Society of Antiquaries in London in 1757. The etchings, with their combination of technical skill, historical accuracy and artistic vision, Robert Adam observed, "he alone might be said to breath the Antient Air."

    Rare example of a reversed engraving on glass, depicting Caroline of Brunswick, made c1821

    Reverse glass printing is a process whereby a print is transferred to a sheet of glass, varnished and coloured to resemble an oil painting.

    The Prince of Wales, son of King George III was introduced to his potential bride, Caroline of Brunswick out of need for money as he was in great debt. Caroline famously, short, fat, ugly and never changed her undergarments, and rarely washed. Her body odour was overwhelming.

    Caroline was very popular with the London public whilst King George was not. Every day when attending the House of Lords her coach was escorted by the cheering mob. George IV’s Coronation was to be the 29th April 1821 but Caroline was told that she would not be taking part in it. Undaunted Caroline arrived at the door of Westminster Abbey on the day demanding to be admitted, but the doors were slammed in her face.

    She died 19 days after her frustrated attempt to get into the Abbey and was buried in Brunswick, and on her coffin was inscribed… ‘CAROLINE THE INJURED QUEEN OF ENGLAND’.
