(b. 1697, Venezia, d. 1768, Venezia)

The Churches of the Redentore and San Giacomo, Venice

Oil on canvas, 47 x 77 cm
Private collection

Most likely completed in England in the late 1740s and rendered with the artist's customary attention to detail, this painting offers waterfront view of one of the most recognizable façades in La Serenissima: the Church of the Redentore.

Built of Istrian stone, the church of the Redentore, or officially the Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore, is arguably Andrea Palladio's masterpiece and represents the apex of his refined architectural ideas.
