Catalogue Note

Son of an art dealer, Franz-Richard Unterberger studied painting in Munich in the 1850s, and then moved to Düsseldorf in the 1860s where he focused on mountain landscapes. He is best-known for his spectacular views of Venice, Amalfi and Naples, of which this is a particularly impressive example.

Painted from the Rio dei Ognissanti looking north west, facing the Ponte Trevisan with the church of Santa Maria del Rosario in the background, the present work is a beautiful example of Unterberger’s oeuvre and of his lively depictions of nineteenth-century Venice. Whilst his keen eye for architectural elements is reminiscent of Italian vedutismo, this animate scene rendered with quick gestural brushstrokes is typical of the artist’s more romantic approach to the genre.
