Imitator of Francesco Guardi: 'A Ruin Caprice'
This painting is part of the group: Two Caprices of Ancient Ruins

Explore the paintings

This painting and another 'Ruin Caprice' are pendants. Both scenes are invented, but they are intended to give the impression that they are set in the Venetian Lagoon.

In the past they have been catalogued as the work of Guardi, but they are now accepted as 19th-century imitations.
