Michele Giovanni Marieschi Paintings in GeocodedArt

Michele Giovanni Marieschi (1710-1743) paintings of Venice did not feature bright sunshine.  The skies tended to be brooding, there are not the shadows that lent depth and realism to the view of other vedute painters, and the water  surface does not have the shimmer that has enchanted later painters who came to see what the great painters saw.
He did his share of romantic capriccios, but seems not to have traveled outside Venice to paint views of other locations.
