Guardi, Francesco. 1712-1793

Landscape

Italy, Circa 1780

Guardi painted this landscape during the last years of his life, a period during which he created his most outstanding works. He rarely worked on such large canvases. A master of townscapes, known as vedute, Guardi often turned to capriccios. The unified silvery-brown tone of the painting, enlivened by sparkling brushstrokes of white, creates a troubled and also a romantic mood, the sky, hills, bay and twisted trees all suffused with the breath of life.
