Francesco Lazzaro Guardi was an Italian painter considered one the last practitioners of the classic Venetian school of painting. He mainly reproduced religious paintings in his early career. Later, he focused on painting vedute (large, detailed landscape paintings) such as this piece. His spirited painterly style is known as pittura di tocco (of touch) and his work would evolve to be ever more expressionist. His landscapes are known to evoke the onset of dissipation, his vision of a crumbling Republic already beyond repair.

About Giclee Prints
Pronounced 'Zhee-Clay', the word comes from 'gicleur' which is the French technical term for an inkjet nozzle.
Giclee printing is a type of inkjet printing - but not all inkjet prints can be considered a giclee. In order for a print to be considered a true giclee, it must meet at least two basic criteria:
1. The paper or substrate used to actually print the final piece must be of archival quality. Typically it will say it is acid free and consists of a 100% cotton base.
2.True Giclees are printed using pigment-based inks rather than the dye-based inks found in lower cost inkjets. Pigment-based inks have a longer life span that can last anywhere from 100 to 200 years without significant fading.
The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
