Object Description

Italian oil painting of St Mark’s Square by Paoletti
Italian, late 19th Century
Frame: Height 70cm, width 95cm, depth 6cm
Canvas: Height 56cm, width 82cm, depth 2cm

The painting is set in the Piazza San Marco in Venice. Three figures occupy the foreground: a young boy holds a basket of fruit, while two young girls feed pigeons with scraps of bread nearby. The style of execution is superb, with painterly strokes interspersed with sequences of fine precision employed by Paoletti. The colour palette is washed and subdued, indicating the presence of the bright yet overcast sky above.

The painting is held by an ornate carved giltwood frame and is signed lower right ‘Antonio Paoletti fu Giov_ni / Venezia’.
