Apollonio Domenichini was formerly known as the Master of the Langmatt Foundation Views, named after a series of seven views of Venice in the Langmatt Foundation, Zurich. The artist of these paintings, and a large corpus of other works, has now been convincingly identified as Domenichini. He was a follower of Luca Carlevarijs and Canaletto and, like them, established his reputation by painting views of Venice and its environs. Both of these paintings repeat prototypes painted by Canaletto in numerous versions, but with slightly differing viewpoints and arrangements of the figures.
