Canaletto – Metropolitan Museum of Art 59.38. Venice: Santa Maria della Salute (c. 1740)

DT1582

Materials: oil on canvas. Dimensions: 47.6 x 79.4 cm. Acquisition date: 1959. Nr.: 59.38. Source: www.metmuseum.org/collections/search-the-collections/1100…. P.S. I have changed the light, colors and contrast of the original photo.

A bird’s eye view is to a degree imaginary, even if the scene is real, and this view is taken from high above the Grand Canal and the landing stage at Santa Maria della Salute. The panorama embraces the entrance to the canal in the direction of the “bacino”, with, at the right, the façade and dome of the church, one of the most splendid sights that Venice affords. The Salute church was designed by Baldassare Longhena (1598–1682) and built beginning in 1631, in thanksgiving for the deliverance of the city from the virulent plague of the previous year. Beyond is the façade of the Seminario Patriarcale and further along the tower of the Dogana, or Customs House, seen above warehouse roofs. At the left on the waterfront are some of the most important buildings in Venice: the mint, the library, one of the columns in the Piazzetta, Palazzo Ducale, and the prison, with the Riva degli Schiavoni stretching in a gentle curve toward the right. In the foreground are gondolas; beyond, large numbers of ocean-going ships, their rigging silhouetted against the sky.

The scene, compressed in depth and painted with maximum clarity in a clear light with slanting shadows, is probably from about 1740. Canaletto’s earliest picture of the canal and the Salute from the west is ten or twelve years earlier, while his largest and most famous canvas of this subject dates to 1744 and is in the British royal collection (http://www.metmuseum.org/collections/search-the-collections/110000273).

Francesco Guardi – The Ashmolean Museum A149. Pope Pius VI blessing the Crowd at Campo SS Giovanni e Paolo, Venice (1782)

Guardi painted four scenes to celebrate the historic visit of Pius VI to Venice from 15-19 May 1782: The Pope met by the Doge(Philadelphia Museum of Art); The Te Deum at SS Giovanni e Paolo(private collection, Paris); the Audience of the Senate(Sotheby’s, Florence, 24 September 1985, lot 19; and the Papal Blessing(A149). Commissioned by the Venetian state through the agency of Pietro Edwards on 21 May 1782, they were completed by 24 December 1782. A number of preparatory drawings for A149 are known, while Guardi and his studio made other versions, of which the most important is that at Upton House (National Trust). An elaborate temporary staircase and balcony was erected in front of the Scuola Grande di San Marco to accommodate the Pope, the Doge, the Patriarch of Venice and other dignitaries. Guardi elongated the proportions of the buildings and of the Colleoni statue to give greater verve and dramatic effect to the scene (http://www.ashmolean.org/ash/objects/makedetail.php?pmu=730&mu=732&gty=asea&sec=&dtn=15&sfn=Artist%20Sort,Title&cpa=1&rpos=7&cnum=&mat=&pro=&anum=&art=guardi&ttl=&sou=).
