This pair of fascinating paintings, executed with an elegant taste of rockery, are designed according to the scenographic sensibility of the most classic Venetian landscape tradition of the first part of the 18th century.
These are two wide views of Venetian landscapes, painted in monochrome blue with white elevations, whose peculiar horizontal composition, fashioned in higher art, would suggest their original location as an overhang.
The gaze is lost on two large landscapes, with small villages located on the hills along the banks of the river. The scenes are brought to life by animated figurines, dressed in 18th century clothing, while they are entertained in their various activities.
The works, which present an important pictorial quality, participate in the illustrative tradition of the 18th century, with obvious references to the painting of Marco Ricci (Belluno 1676 - Venice 1730), to such an extent that they can be attributed to a gravitating author around his close entourage. One of the most important protagonists in the field of Venetian landscape, Ricci, devoted himself to the creation of rural landscapes, close to lyrical-pastoral tones, with the typical rapid and wavering brushstroke that one finds, no only by observing the scenography, but also the graceful figurines.
The perspective with the presence of the tree in the center of the scene, the succession of hills that mark the valley, on the bottom of which we can see the mountains, modulated by the harmonious sequence of lights and shadows that mark the slope from the ground to the horizon, is typical of his compositions.
The canvases are in good condition, with some old retouching.
