Capriccio View with Palladio's Design for the Rialto Bridge


RCIN 404029

Canaletto transforms Palladio’s black and white woodcut design into a reality, setting the bridge at a slight angle to make it more three-dimensional and surrounding it with buildings both real and imagined. Andrea Palladio design maximises the potential for trade with six rows of shops in three streets. Antonio Da Ponte’s (1512-1597) single-arch design was ultimately chosen to be built instead.
