Abstract:

"This volume starts its chronological exploration with Canaletto and Guardi, the last two great Venetian veduta painters of the eighteenth century, whose gay and festive paintings had a lasting effect on the perception of Venice among European visitors from the north. Turner introduced a new view of Venice: his paintings are Romantic meditations on beauty and decline, on power and transience. In the late nineteenth century, the Impressionists and their followers were impressed by the light and architecture. They painted views of the Grand Canal, Piazza San Marco, San Giorgio Maggiore, and the lagoon, which are among the most precious images of Venice. This splendid volume, filled with large-format color illustrations, is the first to provide a comprehensive examination of Venice's image in European and American painting of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries - a feast for anyone who loves the Serenissima."--Jacket.
