A pair of fascinating architectural capricci (oil on canvas, 68 x 71 cm), executed in an elegant rococo style and designed with a scenic sensibility in the most classic Venetian landscape tradition of the first part of the eighteenth century. The two views represent a landscape composition of the invention, enriched by various types of ruined palaces and temples with Corinthian colonnades and pilasters on which some plants have grown. The scenes are animated by animated figurines, dressed in eighteenth-century dresses and dedicated to their various activities: those who like the sound of musical instruments or entertain themselves in chatter and those who devote themselves to work by accompanying the cattle. From the point of view of attribution, our author, who, as one might expect, is part of 18th century Veneto, deals with the themes favored by the Venetian Marco Ricci, for his luminous compositions rich in atmospheric effects. Ricci worked and founded a vast workshop in Venice, with which he was able to compensate for the many requests for paintings from all over Italy and all over Europe. He devoted himself to the scenographic activity by specializing on the ruins theme. The engravings, printed in countless copies of his works, had an extraordinary influence on the Italian and European landscape until the beginning of the nineteenth century. The paintings and frames are in good condition, with some signs of the time. At the discretion of the future buyer, choose to keep them in the current conditions or to intervene during a restoration.
