Silvestr Shchedrin Paintings in Geocoded Art

New Rome With The Castel Sant Angelo

Painting by Silvestr Shchedrin (1791-1830) 

Nephew of Semyon, the younger Shchedrin did very evocative paintings in Italy that hold up today for their "now-ness".  The atmosphere, the sound of waves, every sense of the place is conveyed through careful inclusion of detail, realistic lighting and color, and with iconic subjects in the background that are instantly familiar
