Rococo   •   Bernardo Bellotto @ Wikipedia

In August 1944, the Second World War raged. The city of Dresden had been almost completely destroyed by Allied air raids. The fact that the current capital of Saxony could be rebuilt is due, among other things, to a man: Bernardo Bellotto.

Born in Venice in the early 1720s, the man, also known as the Canaletto, soon moved to the wider world. He was virtually born in the cradle. His uncle Giovanni Canal was also an artist. Canaletto is best known for its numerous vedutas. In realistic representations, he painted numerous cityscapes. In addition to Vienna, Bernardo Bellotto worked mainly in Dresden. At the end of the 1740s he became the court painter of the Saxon Elector and Polish King Frederick August II. At this time he created a Dresden cycle consisting of 14 vedutas. On behalf of the Elector, for example, Bellotto painted the view of Dresden from the right bank of the Elbe above the Augustus Bridge. This cycle began in the year 1754 and was used almost 190 years later to rebuild the bombed city as a template. Thus, the old town could be reconstructed almost in detail. In addition, Bernardo Bellotto painted, for example, for the Bavarian Elector Maximilian III. Joseph views of the castle Nymphenburg. His further journey eventually took him to the Warschauer Hof. After several years of work on the so-called Kunstdepartemnet, Canaletto died in Warsaw in 1780. © Meisterdrucke
