GUARDI, Francesco
(b. 1712, Venezia, d. 1793, Venezia)

The Four Evangelists and the Holy Trinity with Saints

Oil on canvas, 131 x 105 cm
Akademie der bildenden Künste, Vienna

This painting and its companion piece depicting the Four Church Fathers were devised as small altar paintings, possibly for a chapel. Although in the Guardi workshop Gianantonio was the specialist in religious history works, stylistic analysis showed that these can be attributed to Francesco Guardi.
