Capriccio. Late XVIII century

Regular price €1.200,00

Tax included.

Architectual capriccio view with the ruins of a building with columns and with 2 triangular pediments.

In the background an alpine landscape, probably in Veneto.

Period: Second half of the 18th century. Technique: oil on canvas.

The whole of the rural landscape and the building surrounded by its own fallen stone blocks, appears like an enchanted vision.

At the side of the building there are spectators and travelers: curious characters with elongated bodies, painted in a whimsical way, in the manner of Francesco Guardi.

Under the painting you can see the texture of a beautiful ancient canvas and reddish preparation under the colors.
