Rare Pair of Rome Prospects Engravings Signed Both Giuseppe Vasi and Piranesi

These engravings depict ‘Porto di Ripetta’ and ‘Scalinata in Piazza di Despagna’, the port of Ripetta and the Spanish Steps, both in Rome. The engravings both bear the names of Giuseppe Vasi (1710 – 1782) and Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778), the latter being at a certain time the student of Vasi. Only few engravings with both names exist. The engravings have not been inspected out of the frame and matting. We believe they may be dating to the 19th century, but could well be older. Both engravings are housed in antique water gilded frames. The image sizes are 8.25 by 12.75 inches and the sizes including frames are 16 by 12 inches.
