Masons' Courtyard - Canaletto. 123.8x162.9

Giovanni Antonio Canal, nicknamed Canaletto (1697-1768) - Italian artist, head of the Venetian school of Vedutism (from the Italian “veduta” - “view”), master of urban landscape in the Baroque style.

It so happened that in England there were quite a few works of Canaletto. This is due to the fact that many young aristocrats, completing the cycle of their studies, made educational trips to Italy. In Venice, they saw a lot of Canaletto paintings with views of the city and with pleasure bought them. By the way, when the artist ended up in England and worked in London, his works were not very successful, he was forced to return to his homeland.

“Masons' Courtyard” is one of Canaletto’s best works.. The master’s idea of ​​him is based, first of all, on canvases depicting attractive views of Venice, and this picturesque masterpiece by its theme stands apart in its heritage. The picture does not depict a festivity, a solemn departure of the doge, or a regatta on the Grand Canal ... But, nevertheless, the viewer still has the same Grand Canal as it was during the time of Canaletto: with a working quarter on the shore. Even the most prosaic topic - the work of masons - the artist embodied very poetically. In the background is the church and bell tower of Santa Maria della Carita. In 1841, the belfry unexpectedly collapsed without damaging the temple, and has not been restored since then. So the paintings of the painter with her views, in particular this one, are not only of artistic value, but are also documents of the era.
