VISENTINI, Antonio
(b. 1688, Venezia, d. 1782, Venezia)

Washerwomen

1739-40
Oil on canvas
Palazzo Contarini Fasan, Venice

The painting belongs to a cycle of eight large perspective views that derive from sketches of theatrical stage design. The series is striking for its architectural complexity, which provides an extraordinary background to ordinary daily life and amusement.
