Pannini or Panini, Giovanni Paolo

(jōvän`nē pä`ōlō pänēn`nē, pänē`nē), 1691–1765, Italian painter. Pannini abandoned the study of architecture for painting, becoming famed for his broad cityscapes, or vidute. His commemorative paintings of public events work tiny human figures into vast urban settings. In his paintings of ruins (e.g., Roman Ruins, Mus. di Capodimonte, Naples), he combined the landmarks of ancient and Renaissance Rome.
