Reblogged this on Whipped Owl.
Thank you for the reblog! 🙏
From your earlier post I learned that a capriccio was an imaginary scene.
Learning about Canaletto was the first time I heard about capriccio.
Etymologically, capriccio is the same word as caprice. Look at the interesting etymology:
That’s exactly why I thought the use of the word in art somewhat odd. 😉
What can I say? Artists are odd.
I love your detailed tributes, Marina. They add so much to my understanding of art and history. Artworks have a life of their own beyond their creators. What is most thrilling is that whatever message Giovanni Antonio Canal wanted to share, remains in his paintings. Truly a wonderful way to begin my week.
Ah, thank you so much, ny dear Rebecca. Indeed their message always remains in their paintings and it’s fascinating to discover.
I hope your week is beautiful.
Amazing paintings of architecture!
Thank goodness such talent existed!
Amazing isn’t it?! Such intricate details!
Yes!!! His love of drawing buildings is our reference today. 🤗😘🤗😘xoxo🤗😘🤗😘
“Capriccio with Ruins and Porta Portello” is a wonderful painting. I really like his “selfie” he has a perfect “Are you serious?” smirk on his face.
Yes, I agree… on his expression too!!
What a beautiful painting!
Isn’t it? 🤗😘🤗
Very much so. xoxo
