EDITORS COMMENTS
This print by Giovanni Battista Piranesi, titled "Prisoners on a Projecting Platform" showcases the artist's exceptional talent and creativity. Created in 1761 as part of his renowned series Carceri d'Invenzione, this etching on laid paper is a true masterpiece. The image depicts a group of prisoners confined within an intricate architectural structure. The platform they stand on juts out into space, creating an illusion of precariousness and entrapment. Piranesi's attention to detail is evident in every line and shadow, showcasing his skill as both an architect and artist. The composition exudes a sense of mystery and intrigue, inviting viewers to contemplate the emotional state of these imprisoned figures. Their expressions are hidden from view, leaving us to wonder about their thoughts and feelings. Piranesi's artistic expression transcends time, allowing us to appreciate the beauty and elegance of his work even today. This old yet timeless piece reflects not only the culture of its era but also speaks to universal themes such as confinement, powerlessness, and human resilience. As we gaze upon this illustration from the Liszt Collection with admiration for Piranesi's creative genius, we are reminded once again that art has the power to provoke thought, evoke emotions, and transport us into different worlds.
