*Rococo Revisited
Bernardo Bellotto - Capriccio, palace staircase
Bellotto (ca. 1721– 1780) was a Venitian urban landscape painter or vedutista, and printmaker in etching famous for his vedutes of European cities (Dresden, Vienna, Turin and Warsaw). He was the pupil and nephew of Canaletto and sometimes used the latter’s illustrious name, signing himself as Bernardo Canaletto. Bellotto’s scenes have the same carefully drawn realism as his uncle’s Venetian views but are marked by heavy shadows and are darker and colder in tone and colour.
