Gian Simonetti (Italian, 19th Century)

Fishermen in the Venetian Lagoon at Daybreak

Oil-on-canvas, signed lower left

Painting: 16” x 20”
Frame: 22” x 26”

There is little biographical information on Simonetti, and it has been suggested that it is a pseudonym for Gian Gianni who was one of the last of the view painters of Italy. Gianni worked mostly in watercolor and produced views of Naples and Venice for people who were making the Grand Tour. The advent of photography soon took the place of these painters.
