– Sunset in Rialto – Wooden bas-relief painted with acrylics.
27” x 21” (69 x 55 cm)
Panel thickness 1,5”
View of Rialto at dusk.
Majestic and elegant with its white Istrian stone, the oldest and most famous bridge in Venice overlooks the Grand Canal, framed by its magnificent buildings in the Gothic-Renaissance style.
The extraordinary artistic level achieved in the carving of this bas-relief (depth 9 mm) is revealed in the attention to detail; arched porches, elaborate capitals, serrated cornices, iron balconies, stairways and balustrades. The play of colors at sunset with the reflections on the water of the lit lanterns make the Opera a true jewel of sculptural and pictorial technique. The frame is custom carved in perfect Venetian style and painted in gold.
