Condition Report

These two etchings form a panoramic view of the Prato della Valle of the Valley of Padua, in which bright lilies are immersed in the atmosphere sensed with clear brightness. Although conceived separately, the two prints, according to the intention of the artist, had to be assembled, as shown by the incised figure right over the line of the margin in the view of S. Giustina, whose mantle is exactly taken up, on the left, in the other view. The two tables, rarely found together, were engraved by the Canaletto between 1741 and 1745 and were first published in 1746.
