Pair of very large paintings by Giambattista Canal (1745 - 1825)

Pair of large paintings by Giambattista Canal depicting epic scenes, from an important Venetian private collection.

Son of Fabio Canal (1703-1767), painter of remarkable skill, specialized in frescoing of vaults of churches and palaces in Venice (Gloria del Sacramento, Church of S. Martino, ceiling with Allegory, Palazzo Grassi), Giambattista (1745-1825) he belongs to that group of Tiepolesque painters, including Menescardi, Lorenzi, Guarana and Cedini (1741 - 1811), who spread Tiepolo's stylistic features in Veneto. Giambattista was the most spacious and monumental, realizing the ceiling with Sant'Eufemia in glory in the church of Sant'Eufemia, Venice, The glory of San Lorenzo, Padernello, Parish Church, the Nativity, also in Padernello. In the second phase of his life, at the end of the eighteenth century, Canal turned to the neoclassical style, abandoning the Tiepolo style.
The first canvas depicts a scene of a love genre, which can also recall models of contemporary French painting, chronologically still placed in the second half of the eighteenth century, and is in pendant with the other, depicting a scene of chivalrous love.
As in the other companion painting, the painter displays all his Tiepolesque vein, in an Arcadian-Gallant genre different from the sacred painting of the large frescoes in Venetian churches and palaces. Here the gallant subject of literary inspiration is carried out according to a refined eroticism that perhaps denotes a knowledge of French painting of the time.
