    Fine oil on canvas Venetian School very much in the style of Guardi.
    Circa 1800-1820 ( unsigned ).

     
    Francesco Guardi was, after Canaletto, the main painter of views of Venice in the 18th century.
     
    His early figurative paintings were carried out in association with his brother, Gian Antonio, but in about 1760 Guardi turned to view painting.
     
    Following Canaletto he recorded both the architecture of the city and the celebrations of its inhabitants in interior and exterior scenes.
    These works brought him great success.
     
    Francesco Guardi was born in Venice, the son of a minor painter, Domenico Guardi. In 1719 his sister married Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, who may have influenced the vivacity and bright colouring of Guardi's figures.
     
    While Guardi followed Canaletto in producing views or vedute, he soon developed his own style, based on a freer handling of paint.
    He took particular pleasure in rendering the vibrant atmosphere of Venetian light and its dazzling effect on water.
     
    The more 'impressionistic' approach of Guardi also found expression in small-scale imaginary scenes or capricci, of which there are many surviving examples, such as 'An Architectural Caprice'.
