Francesco Guardi (born October 5, 1712 in Venice, † January 1, 1793 ibid) was an Italian veduta and landscape painter of the Rococo.The oil painting VENICE, A VIEW OF THE PIAZZETTA LOOKING SOUTH WITH THE PALAZZO DUCALE was made around 1780. From this view, he painted several copies (he also needed money), which are now all privately owned.
The oil painting "Keswick Street" was painted in 1870 by Joseph Brown Junior - a local painter and decorator - and is located in Fitz Park, Keswick Art Gallery. It is a well-balanced, beautifully executed Breughel scene on Main Street with 45 figures - 43 men, 1 woman and a little girl and 2 very small horses, a dog and a donkey - against the background of the Moot Hall. The most interesting thing about this painting is that the artist gave a numbered outline key to the people who were represented by their names and, in most cases, their occupations. There is one. Many of the names are known.
A retired teacher and friend of the museum who lives in Keswick has spent a lot of time researching and writing a book about each named person. He gave life to these people in the picture.
Monk Bar in York (UK) is a four-story gatehouse of the city fortifications and was built in the early 14th century. It was intended as a self-contained fort and each floor could be defended separately. The current gatehouse was built on the site of the Roman gate porta decumana. William Etty (* 1787 in York; † 1849 there), an English Romantic painter and member of the Royal Academy, painted the gate in 1838.
The original is on display at the York Art Gallery.
