Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as Canaletto, was a Venetian artist admired for his landscapes of Venice. Inspired by the Roman painter Giovanni Paolo Pannini, the artist began portraying the daily life of the city and its people. Through the expression of his surroundings and views of Venice, Canaletto influenced many generations of landscape painters. The upcoming Master Paintings & Sculpture Day Sale offered by Sotheby’s will include an oil painting from Canaletto. It depicts a scene of the Riva Degli Schiavoni waterfront area, the Palazzo Ducale, and the column of St. Mark in Venice.
Another item available in the event is a piece from the 17th-century artist, Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini. Through his lifelong artistic career, Bernini explored a new style of expression that heavily contributed to the Baroque movement. Other featured items include a painting by Jusepe de Ribera, titled Job on the Ash Heap. Images of mutilated bodies, faces in pain, wounded flesh, and bearded women commonly reappear in his paintings. Through the use of coarse brush marks and thick pigment, de Ribera adds realistic details to show wrinkles and wounds in his work.
