Description: Milano: Electa, 2011. 29cm., hardcover, slipcase, 479pp., 503 color plates. Italian text. Summary: A new volume in the prestigious series which, over the years, has enabled us to examine many areas of the painting of the Veneto, from its origins to the present day. This is the third book dedicated to 18th-century painting in the Veneto. In particular, it considers the artists and schools of mainland Veneto: religious painting, portrait-painting and, more particularly, vedutismo, a genre which emerged in Venice towards the end of the 17th century, and became incredibly popular because it reflected the change in the lagoon city's rapport with the mainland after the permanent decline of the mercantile ideal on the basis of which the Most Serene Republic had amassed its wealth.
