(b. 1697, Venezia, d. 1768, Venezia)
Capriccio with Ruins and Porta Portello, Padua1750s
Oil on canvas, 61 x 76 cm
Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice
This painting is probably the companion piece of the Capriccio with Classical Ruins and Buildings with which it shares its use of light and colour. The monument in the middle distance provides the greatest point of luminosity.
