Lot Essay

Federico del Campo was without doubt the most accomplished painter of his time to specialise in Venetian vedute painting for the international market, a genre that was immensely popular in the late 19th century, and other exponenents of which included artists such as Franz Richard Unterberger and Rubens Santoro.

Del Campo's paintings are notable for their crystalline atmosphere, in which the buildings of Venice are set against dazzling, light blue sea and sky, and for their bright palette. He achieved this effect with great technical precision through the application of short, fine, brushstrokes and delicate glazes, which give the surface of his paintings a shimmering and luminous quality.
