Giovanni Giardini 1646-1721

DISEGNI DIVERSI. JOAN GIARDINI INU: ET DELIN.

MAXI.S IOSEPH. LIMPACH PRAGENSIS SCULP. ROMA

Giovanni Giardini was an Italian draughtsman and master silversmith, whose reputation is based on his pattern-book designs for sacred and common objects, which were engraved on copper by Maximilian Limpach of Prague and published in Prague in 1714 as 'Disegni diversi'. This is the most important collection of patterns for silversmiths in the 18th century. The objects are divided into different groups, with original decorative designs; they demonstrate the influence of Baroque sculpture and architecture and were the most important source of inspiration for Roman silversmiths in the 18th century.
