In this painting and its pair, displayed to the left, Marco captures the real effects of light, the weather and the seasons. Yet the compositions are also carefully balanced so that the viewer is led on a journey through an idealised landscape. Marco’s attention to the effects of light was highly influential on the younger Canaletto.
