Description : Veduta di Vienna dal Belvedere, copia da Canaletto

Mixed media (acrylics and oils) on canvas. Painted between the 1960s and 1970s. It is a copy of one of the many views of Vienna painted between 1758 and 1761 by Bernando Bellotto, better known as Canaletto. They are kept in the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna. The large view, enlivened by numerous figures in the typical style of both the 18th century's Venetian painting and Canaletto himself, is taken from the upper Belvedere of the same named palace. It was the summer residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy, which was built on a hill on the southern part of the city center. A series of large Baroque buildings appear in the background behind the gardens. In particular, the Karlskirche (church of S. Carlo Borromeo) with its monumental dome and the Schwarzenberg Palace with exaggerated proportions. So as the Orangerie and the Lower Belvedere of the Palace. Finally, on the right there is the Salesian Convent. Behind all this monuments, further still in the background, it is possible to see the fortified city center and the spiers of the Stephansdom (St. Stephan's Cathedral). The painting's frame is from the first half of the 1900s.

Additional Information

Age: XX Century - from 1901 to 2000

The twentieth century is characterized by the prevalence of the bourgeoisie over the working class and by the discovery that life continues to be a struggle for survival and to improve its quality. Technological progress, instead of favoring this development, becomes an instrument of mechanization and drying up of man, who needs to look for a "soul supplement" and new forms to express it. Therefore, a whole series of artistic currents are born that create works expressing the interiority of man, which evoke reality from within rather than represent it, and depict it using, freely, shapes and colors. We therefore have Decadentism with Art Nouveau, Matisse and Braque's Fauvism, Picasso's Cubism, then Expressionism with Munch, Kandinskij's Abstractionism and Metaphysical painting by Carrà and De Chirico. There are numerous currents and groups of artists and intellectuals who use Art as a Manifesto of their thought, often also with a political connotation.

Artistic technique: Pittura

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.
