by Giovanni Antonio Canaletto

Love it or Your Money Back

Ponte Di Rialto - Description

Giovanni Antonio Canaletto is well known and loved for his paintings of canals, bridges and architecture. He began his career painting theatrical scenes, and retained a love for lighting and staging. In this painting, Ponte Di Rialto, his strengths truly come to the fore. The beautiful sky with white, puffy clouds hovers over the city. The city’s buildings recede into the distance, with an expert’s use of perspective and the vanishing point. Buildings are rendered in earth tones of orange, brown and yellow, with half in shadow and half in light. The river is alive with boats of all shapes and sizes. The oarsmen’s tools create a spiky interplay of vertical stripes. The boat inhabitants wear brightly colored period clothing. The river is rendered in a lovely, realistic style. In the left of the image, the river is shaded by the buildings, and the water takes on a dark turquoise hue. This painting, Ponte Di Rialto, is a treasure for experts studying Venice in the 1700s. Canaletto’s details, down to the buttons on the dresses and the colors on the boats, is truly unparalleled and gives the viewer much to look at and admire.
