ARCHIVES OF LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS. Pietro Bellotto
This year sees the start of a new and fascinating investigation at Ca’ Rezzonico, the symbol of 18th century Venice, into landscape painting. This important genre developed during the 18th century in Venice, which provided an extraordinary source of inspiration for its exponents. Among the leading figures of the genre, which is at the centre of a necessary re-evaluation, was Pietro Bellotto, Canaletto’s nephew and the younger brother of Bernardo Bellotto.
The exhibition will offer a survey of the painter’s long working life, bringing together the few of his works conserved in public collections, such as at the Yale Center for British Art and the Mauritshuis in The Hague, and about 40 other pictures, including signed works in private European collections.
