Room A: Paintings after 1600

An invented ruined arch dominates this view. Two men are depicted digging in the foreground. The architecture may have been inspired by ruins found on one of the islands in the Venetian lagoon. A larger painting by Guardi of the same period (London, Victoria and Albert Museum) also includes the ruined arch.
