Benvenuti, Eugenio
Italian (1881 - 1959)
Gondolier on Grand Canal, Ca' Rezzonico
Watercolor 22 1/2" x 9"
$2,500

From the Grand Canal to the Doges Palace, Benvenuti focused on painting the gondoliers and lagoons of Venice. With his precise brushwork and attention to detail, Benvenuti captured Venice in different times of day, playing with the light on the water and in the sky to convey mood and atmosphere.

In “Gondolier on Grand Canal, Ca’ Rezzonico,” Benvenuti captures a slice of life along the canal. The afternoon sunlight shines on the warm colors of the Venetian buildings in the background, contrasting with the blues of the sky and waterway. The gondolier slides easily along the water, the only movement in the scene. The vertical format emphasizes the length of the canal and draws the viewers eye in along the buildings, allowing us to marvel at Benvenuti’s gorgeous rendering of all parts of this scene.
