Catalogue Note

A similar composition was commissioned by Genovese banker Francesco Peloso to Canella and presented at the Brera Belle Arti exhibition in 1833. La Corsia dei servi, named after a very popular street in Milan, was very well received by the public as by art critics who saw in Canella the next Migliara. This painting was sold by Sotheby's in Milan on June 16th 2010, for 168 000€.

Francesco Peloso, very satisfied with his painting, asked Canella to execute other views of Italy for him.

In both versions, Canella meticulously painted each person represented, from the balconies to the cathedral in the background. The details are executed with such precision that some people were able to recognize one another, thus rendering a most faithful representation of the society.

Our painting, dated 1834, shows a few variants, especially in the people in the foreground.
