Canaletto – Los Angeles County Museum of Art M.83.39. Piazza San Marco Looking South and West (1763)


Materials: oil on canvas. Dimensions: 56.5 x 102.9 cm. Acquisition: Gift of The Ahmanson Foundation. Source: http://collectionsonline.lacma.org/mwebcgi/mweb.exe?request=record;id=49955;type=101. P.S. I have changed the light and contrast of the original photo.

The artist Antonio Canal (also called Canaletto) made this painting in 1763. He included in the painting many of the buildings that surround the piazza. The corner of the Church of San Marco is on the very left and the bell tower stands tall above the other buildings. People move through the piazza and merchants bargain with customers in their tents. Although the scene looks very realistic, it would be impossible to see everything Canaletto included in the painting by standing in just one place. He combined two views of the piazza, one from the west and one from the south. The result is a painting that is slightly better than the real thing (http://collectionsonline.lacma.org/mwebcgi/mweb.exe?request=record;id=49955;type=101).

Jacob van Ruisdael, Nicolaes Berchem – Los Angeles County Museum of Art M.91.164.1. The Great Oak (1652)

Friends and traveling companions Jacob van Ruisdael and Nicolaes Berchem occasionally collaborated on paintings. Here Berchem’s figures of Italianate shepherds and travelers, including a gentleman and discharged soldiers, are strategically placed to suggest space and movement through Ruisdael’s light-filled, northern landscape. The monumental battered oak tree clinging to the sand dominates Ruisdael’s landscape both compositionally and thematically. By 1749 the painting was in Rome in the famous collection of Cardinal Silvio Valenti Gonzaga. (http://collectionsonline.lacma.org…)
