This pair of views was painted at the end of the 18th century by an unknown artist in the manner of Francesco Guardi (October 5, 1712 – January 1, 1793). Guardi celebrated city views and the surrounding lagoon countryside in the Onirico painting tradition where detail is subordinate to mood and a crepuscular light is predominant.
Paintings such as these mark the transition from the detailed schemes typical of Canaletto and Poussin, toward a romanticised representation of reality which infiltrated the entire artistic movement at the turn of the 19th century.
