Gondola Ride in Venice by G. Mantegazza



Picturesque scene of a family ride in gondola on a canal in Venice signed G. Mantegazza. Unlike the 18thcentury painters who portray Venice in a very architectural way with the genre of the veduta (based on the perspective representation of an urban landscape), Giacomo Mantegazza uses the city as a simple background for his genre scenes, as he did many times for gallant themes. His fine and precise touch gives a great expressiveness to his models, usually placed at the center of very detailed compositions. Born in Saronno in 1853 and dead in Cernobbio in 1920, Giacomo Mantegazza is an artist known for his many portraits and genre scenes. Student of Giuseppe Bertini, renowned for his frescoes, in the Brera Academy, he later specialized in Orientalist scenes, with representations of gypsies and harems. Dimensions with frame: Height 89 cm (35 in.) ; Width 139 cm (54.7 in.) Dimensions without frame: Height 121 cm (47.6 in.) ; Width 169 cm (66.5 in.)
