Veduta di Roma - Copper plates by Jacob Friedrich after Giovanni Battista Piranesi

Jacob (Johann Christian Jacob) Friedrich (13.October.1746 Friedricchstadt near Dresden - ibidem 3. June 1813) was a flower- and landscape painter. He was also famous for his copper etchings. Here we are interested in the latter, because Friedrich has etched a series of Roman architecture after Giovanni Battista in a quart format. The all-comprehensive artists lexicon “Thieme/Becker" gives only 15 etchings of such etchings, illustrating Saxonian architect Christian Traugott Weinlig's “Briefe über Rom" (Letters about Rome) which were written between 1767 and 1769, but not published until 1781 to 1787.

We have purchased a collection of 27 copper etchings after the “Vedute di Roma", clearly signed in the plate by Friedrich, which is an indication that Friedrich etched more plates after Piranesi's “Vedute di Roma" than the mentioned 15. The entire purched collection comprised 35 copper etchings, definately belonging together, since they are numbered within the platemarks in Roman numerals from I to XXXV. 27 of them were signed by Friedrich, the others signed by someone else or unsigned. In the following description we indicate the details.

The general condition of all copper etchings is Good. They are basically clean. Some have a general age toning, especially in margins. Plates have in utmost upper right pagina numbers in pale brownisch handwriting. We are not sure what these numbers are relating to, as they do not correspond with the printed Roman numbers. We do not mention these ink numbers with each description. But any other particulars will be mentioned with each. Friedrichs signature reads: J.C.J. Friedrich sc. secundum Piranesi. We shall just mention Signed by Friedrich in the detailed description.
