Surveying Francesco Guardi's distinctive oeuvre through a presentation of expressively rendered views of Venice, studies of imaginary ruins and depictions of public pageants, the first volume of this two-part catalogue presents full-page reproductions and individual analyses of 48 oils and 24 drawings by the celebrated artist (1712-1793) along with critical examinations of his career, his draughtsmanship and the primary themes explored in his works. The second volume documents 39 seldom or never-before exhibited paintings from a group of Turkish fantasy scenes produced in the 1740s by the Guardi family workshop, ten related canvases by Franco-Flemish artist Jean-Baptiste Van Mour (1671-1737), and some 25 of the engravings after Van Mour's designs that served as visual sources for the Guardi compositions. An essay examining the Turkish series in the context of the practices of the Guardi workshop is supplemented by discussions of Van Mour's career and the popularity of prints produced after his paintings during the 18th century.
