Francesco Guardi Paintings Mapped in GeocodedArt.com
Francesco Guardi (1712-1793) paintings included many interiors, fantasy scenes based on ancient architectural ruins, and a few dozen views that reflect the real arrangement of structures in Venice (with varying accuracy).
Compared to others who generate keepsakes for tourists, Guardi works are more emotionally loaded, and are remarked on for their atmosphere, If one could capture what the air would have felt (and smelt) like while standing on these locations, it might be associated with his frequently overcast skies.
