Pair of monumental "capriccio" also called architectural caprices of the golden age of the Italian baroque school of the early eighteenth century from the production of the workshop Alberto Carlieri. Pair of oils on canvas of rectangular shape re-lined and mounted on a frame with keys embedded in their gilded wood frames treated in amati and burnished. Alberto Carlieri was probably of French origin. He likely lived in Rome most of his life. He was a pupil of the architectural painter, Giuseppe Marchi and Andrea Pozzo. Carlieri is distinguished by architectural abundance and living figures, free brushing and brilliant colors, as can be seen here. The pair of canvases that we present offer two distinct periods of the day in an imaginary landscape or not, of neoclassical ruins where the vegetation takes back its rights over the work of man. here an intense chiaroscuro at the end of the day for one of the paintings, the beginning of the day and a departure at sea for the other. Dimensions: width 152cm for one and 151 for the other, Height 117cm. In painting, a caprice or capriccio means architectural fantasy, grouping together buildings, archaeological ruins and other architectural elements in fictitious and often fantastic combinations, and can include personnel.
