Posted in books, journal articles by Editor on March 8, 2018

As noted in Salon, the newsletter of the Society of Antiquaries of London, issue 402 (6 March 2018) . . .

On 31 January John Wilton-Ely FSA was presented with a festschrift at a ceremony at the Instituto Centrale per la Grafica, Palazzo Poli, Rome, in recognition of his services to scholarship on the life and works of Giovanni Battista Piranesi, FSA (elected 1757). The publication is volume 32 of the art historical journal, Studi sul Settecento Romano (Sapienza Università di Roma), entitled Giovanni Battista Piranesi, predecessori, contemporanei e successori: Studi in onore di John Wilton-Ely. The papers were formally delivered in 2016 at a special conference arranged by the Royal Swedish Academy in the Royal Palace at Stockholm, which contains a significant collection of Piranesi’s imaginatively restored classical antiquities, acquired by Gustav III from the artist’s former museo in Rome.
