Venetian evening in an imaginary palace - attributed to Pierre-Antoine Demachy (1723-1807)

Pierre-Antoine Demachy (1723-1807) attributed-Venetian evening in an imaginary palace.

Canvas 72 cm by 68 cm
82 cm by 78 cm frame

Our painting is an architectural whim. It depicts a very certainly imaginary palace where a Venetian evening seems to be preparing. We find in this work the play of light, the nuances of colors to better render the marbled surfaces as the artist likes to represent them and this taste for perspective.

Pierre-Antoine Demachy (1723-1807)

He is a pupil of the Italian painter, installed in Paris, Servandoni. Approved at the Academy in 1755, he became academician in 1758, advisor in 1775 and professor of perspectives in 1786. He exhibited at the Salon of 1793 and 1795.
He is a painter of history, real or imaginary architectures, designer and engraver.
His Parisian landscapes are precious iconographic documents (Views of Paris, Rouen and Strasbourg museums: Paris, Carnavalet museum). The artist, in a spirit close to Pre-Romanticism, which was also to affect H. Robert, often uses light effects, especially for his nocturnal paintings (Palais-Royal la nuit and Incendie de la Foire Saint-Germain, 1762, Paris, Carnavalet Museum).
