Footnotes

  • Views of the Brenta became part of the figurative repertoire of vedutisti from the 1740s, when Canaletto engraved a number of capricci, published in the series Vedute. Altre prese da i luoghi altre ideate da Antonio Canal e da esso intagliate poste in prospettiva illustrate umiliate All'Ill.mo Signor Giuseppe Smith Console di S.M. Britannica appresso la Ser.ma Repubblica di Venezia. Another major iconographic reference for views of this region was Delle Delizie del Fiume Brenta espresso ne' palazzi e casini situati sopra le sue sponde dalla sboccatura della Laguna di Venezia fino alla città di Padova, an impressive publication of 140 engraved plates in two volumes by Gianfrancesco Costa (1711-1772).
    These views depict aspects of the Terra firma, while the presence of travellers and elegant company conversing also indicates an attention towards the leisurely life of the noble class.
    The present View of Dolo shows an interesting depiction of the burchiello, a water taxi pulled by horses, that connected Venice and Padua and which was used by all strata of society. In the View of Mira, elegant figures walk before the entrance of a Palladian style villa, suggesting the Grand Tourists' fascination with architecture. Indeed, it has been noted that such views of the Riviera found a receptive market amongst Grand Tourists, as Consul Smith's commissions to Canaletto testify.
