Attribué à Francesco Guardi (Venise, 1712 - 1793), Caprice, avec arc triomphal en ruine et paysage du bord de la lagune, 18ème siècle. Huile sur toile, 34 x 29 cm.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA.- For the first time since Corot’s lifetime, two of his early paintings of Venice have been reunited. Gallery 19C has recently acquired both works, which when viewed side-by-side provide a rare opportunity to examine the development of Corot’s plein-air painting style in the early formative years when he was in Italy. Both pictures, painted in 1828 and 1834, depict an on-site view of the Campo della Carità looking towards the Duomo della Salute. The addition of the earlier view now constitutes the...
