Nocturnal Celebrations in Via Eugenia at Venice

Oil on canvas, 27 x 44 cm
Museo d'Arte Moderna, Ca' Pesaro, Venice

Nocturnal celebrations here give the artist the opportunity to transform the city under the dazzling light of the fireworks, offering the observer an unusual vision of streets and palazzos cloaked in a magical, almost supernatural atmosphere.
