CAFFI, Ippolito
(b. 1809, Belluno, d. 1866, at sea)

A View of Florence

Oil on canvas, 40 x 49 cm
Private collection

This painting presents a view of the Piazza della Signoria with the Loggia dei Lanzi (at left) in Florence. Caffi built on the perspective methods developed by Canaletto and published a textbook on the subject in 1835. This unfinished view of the Piazza della Signoria exhibits his drawing skills, particularly in the architectural renderings of the Loggia dei Lanzi,
