"Paintings in Proust" - View of the Piazza del Popolo, Giovanni Battista Piranes


The Piazza del Popolo (Veduta della Piazza del Popolo)
"Even in Paris, in one of the ugliest parts of the town, I know a window from which one can see across a first, a second, and even a third layer of jumbled roofs, street beyond street, a violet bell, sometimes ruddy, sometimes too, in the finest ‘prints’ which the atmosphere makes of it, of an ashy solution of black; which is, in fact, nothing else than the dome of Saint-Augustin, and which imparts to this view of Paris the character of some of the Piranesi views of Rome. (Swann's Way)
