PAINTERS OF VENICE: THE STORY OF THE VENETIAN VEDUTA. Bernard Aikema and Boudewijn Bakker. Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, 1990. Published in association with Gary Schwartz/SDU, The Hague. 270 pp. with 176 ills. (54 col.) and 49 reference ills. 23 x 26 cm. ISBN 9061791308 In English.
Showcasing a noteworthy selection of 38 cityscapes by Venetian artists Carlevaris, Canaletto, Bellotto, Marieschi and Guardi drawn from international collections, this scholarly catalogue celebrates the artistic achievements represented by the 18th-century Italian veduta. The evolution of the genre from traditions established by Dutch and Roman artists of the 17th and early 18th centuries is also illustrated through the inclusion of twelve related works by such figures as Gaspar van Wittel, Jacob de Heusch, Viviano Codazzi and Marco Ricci. Two substantial essays discussing the varieties of Roman and Venetian city views produced by Italian and Dutch artists prior to the 1700s and the individual contributions of the five featured painters are supplemented by biographical texts and detailed commentaries on the works and on the scenes depicted.
