Biography / Biographic:
Pannini abandoned the study of architecture for his love of painting, becoming famed for his broad cityscapes, or 'vedute.'
Panini made many commemorative paintings of public events and worked tiny human figures into vast, urban settings. His views of festivals, ceremonies and dignitaries' visits offered lively documents of contemporary events.
In his paintings of ruins (e.g., Roman Ruins, Mus. di Capodimonte, Naples), he combined the landmarks of ancient and Renaissance Rome.
