Venice, the Piazzetta - View from the Riva degli Schiavoni
Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot - circa 1835-1845
1038 x 690 • 118 KB
This carefully studied composition was based on views Corot captured during his 3-year stay in Italy. It was painted in Corot's studio but his attention to detail is nevertheless meticulous. This harks back to the eighteenth century views of this city painted with such detail by Canaletto.

We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
