The Adige River at Verona


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Muted colors and subtle tonal harmonies characterize this view of the fast-flowing Adige River as it passes beneath the five arches of the Ponte della Pietra (two arches are Roman, the central two date from 1520, and the last was a reconstruction of about 1528). Discernible upstream at the left are several palazzi and the Duomo of S. Maria Matricolare, initially a Romanesque construction with later additions, including a campanile designed by Sanmichele, and at the right the region of S. Stefano and the bastion of S. Giorgio silhouetted against the horizon. This work is presumed to have been executed during Thaulow's trip across northern Italy to Venice in 1894.
