Canvas 74 cm by 38 cm
Old frame of 88 cm by 52 cm

The artist offers an imaginary view of a port hanse with fishermen and walkers going about their business in the foreground, a ship is docked. In the center of the composition a shipyard and in the background a set of fortified constructions. All in an atmosphere that Fidanza likes, an atmosphere that becomes blurred by a fog more and more present the further one moves away from the foreground.

Francesco Fidanza (Citta di castello 1747, Milan 1819)

There is little information about his training, probably in Rome with his father Filippo.
He went to Florence in 1793 then to Paris where his paintings were very successful, in particular his seascapes and landscapes. It is believed that he was the pupil of Vernet and then of Lacroix from Marseille
His paintings already present elements that will be typical of Fidanza's mature style: a rendering of the landscape and meteorological effects linked to the taste for 18th century decorativism, far from the rigorously lucid rendering of "sight" as it is defined. in Venice. (Vedute)
He likes hazy atmospheres, likes to animate landscapes of small figurines sketched with short and well-defined brushstrokes.
