The canvas, a view of Venice with the monumental Piazza di San Marco, one of the most evocative and most beloved pictorial views of the lagoon city, must be compared to the hand of an active Venetian author in the 18th century, from the entourage of the landscape painter Francesco Tironi (Venice, 1745 -1797).
This reference is supported by the comparison with certain works of the painter, for the analogous way of staging, in the common tendency to render perspective, for the attention to detail of the architectures punctually drawn, for the marked play of lights and shadows. and for the typology of the many figures of Canaletto, which animate the scene.
The 18th century for Venice, in the artistic and cultural field, is a second "golden age" and the genre of the city view has become a genre appreciated and in great demand among the great prolific names of Vedutism, to satisfy the needs. patrician families, nobles, mainly English and German, but also French, who visited the city during their “Voyage to Italy”.
Tironi is certainly one of the excellences of this pictorial field, with a rich group of collaborators active in his workshop in the lagoon city. Well executed and rich in detail and character, our canvas is a very interesting testimony to 18th century Venice represented from one of the city's most famous and extraordinary views.
The view, in excellent condition, intact and without major restorations, not recently refurbished, is enriched by a beautiful gilded frame, not contemporary.
