Description : Coppia di capricci architettonici con figure

Oil on canvas. Venetian school. The two small glimpses present a lake landscape animated by numerous figures in activity (fishermen on the shore or on boats, travelers with their pack animals, small traders waiting for transport by boat); the architectural ruins of classical taste on the banks are peculiar. The paintings recall the ways of landscape painting widely spread in Veneto in the eighteenth century, which began at the end of the seventeenth century with Luca Carlevarijs (1663-1730) and then resumed by Michele Marieschi (1710-1743): oscillating between engraving and canvas of small or large format (in particular to respond to the great commercial demand of foreign travelers) such views and landscapes on the one hand faithfully testify the magnificence of the historic buildings of Venice and the beauty of the lagoon or the variety of the rural, lake and mountain landscape of the hinterland, on the other hand they indulge the creativity and imagination of the artists, combining real existing buildings with compositions of the imagination and creating a fantastic painting with a pre-romantic taste. The two landscapes are mounted on English frames from the mid-19th century, a period in which, following the Grand Tour, many works were purchased by foreign travelers, especially English, only to be bought back by Italian collectors in English auctions in the first half of the 20th century. . In fact, these works come from an important historical Milanese collection. They are presented in gilded frames from the first half of the 20th century.

La pittura è l'arte che consiste nell'applicare dei pigmenti a un supporto come la carta, la tela, la seta, la ceramica, il legno, il vetro o un muro. Essendo i pigmenti essenzialmente solidi, è necessario utilizzare un legante, che li porti a uno stadio liquido, più fluido o più denso, e un collante, che permetta l'adesione duratura al supporto. Chi dipinge è detto pittore o pittrice. Il risultato è un'immagine che, a seconda delle intenzioni dell'autore, esprime la sua percezione del mondo o una libera associazione di forme o un qualsiasi altro significato, a seconda della sua creatività, del suo gusto estetico e di quello della società di cui fa parte.
