Pietro Antoniani
MILAN CIRCA 1740/1750 - 1805
A PANORAMIC VIEW OF PAESTUM WITH GENTLEMEN ON THE GRAND TOUR IN THE FOREGROUND

Catalogue Note

The Milanese artist Pietro Antoniani focused almost exclusively on views of Naples and its environs throughout his career, garnering the attention of prominent clientele and Grand Tourists.  In the present work, he renders a panoramic view of Paestum, a Greek coastal town just south of Naples.  Prominent structures among the ancient ruins of the city are the three temples of the Doric order seen here, with the Athena Temple at left and the two Hera Temples at right, as well as remnants of the city wall.  The view here appears to be from the coast looking east towards the Cilento Mountains.
