Grassi, Ranieri, Italian engraver (active 1829-1855). Cathedral and Tower of Pisa.

N. p., [mid 19th century].

Two coloured engravings, ca. 195 x 135 and 205 x 120 mm (neatline) on 4to and oblong 4to. Copperprint engraving and gouache on paper. With gouached border.


Charming views of the famous monuments, bearing testimony to the continuous interest in the "Torre pendente di Pisa" that is shown in both prints. The engraver Ranieri Grassi is exclusively known for his vedutas of Pisa, the city's monuments, and their interiors.

The view of the Leaning Tower has an insignificant pinch fold affecting the print and a more extensive edge tear. Three edges bent.
