The Dutchman Caspar Adriaans van Wittel was a vedute painter who spent almost his entire life in Italy. Here he became very famous with his art. The veduta painting deals with the realistic reproduction of landscapes and city views. The artist takes a distant perspective, with a river, meadow or canal in the foreground and a city rising into the sky in the background. Already at a young age van Wittel was taught painting. At 22 he moves to Rome. At first he worked on construction and admired the precise inventories that architects made for new buildings. Soon afterwards he drafts his first veduta. The painting dates from 1681.

In the years that followed, Gaspar van Wittel travelled throughout Italy and painted countless views of famous cities such as Venice, Florence, Bologna and Naples. The Gotthard Pass is also found in one of his works. In 1700 he moved to Naples, married and founded his own family. His son Luigi saw the light of day. During this time, the demand for city views increases - especially among travellers and pilgrims in the Italian capital Rome. Van Wittel knew how to satisfy this demand particularly well with his small paintings. In the end there were only city views as unwieldy copper engravings to buy at the market. So Gaspar van Wittel became a Roman pioneer, because he was the first veduta painter who made the handy paintings with oil colors.

His works are in great demand; also among the Roman aristocratic family, who repeatedly commission van Wittel. For 30 years he worked highly productively. He produced a particularly large number of city views of Rome as well as some important palaces of the noble family such as the Albani, Colonna or Ottoboni. During his 30-year career, the painter Gaspar van Wittel created a large number of topographically accurate views of Rome and its surroundings. His special way of creating landscape paintings in bright colours, which are also extremely light-flooded, had a great influence on the painters of posterity. He inspired Italian painters like Panini, Giovanni Antonio Canal, Luca Carlevarijs or Guardi. With increasing age Gaspar van Wittel loses more and more of his vision. He suffers from myopia; despite wearing glasses. So his productivity also decreases more and more. He continued to live in Naples and Rome and died in 1736, while his son Luigi van Wittel became a respected architect in Naples. Today, the vedute van Wittels is mainly privately owned. Therefore, the first big exhibition about the veduta painter Gaspar van Wittel with many of his works took place for the first time in 2006 in the Museo Correr in Venice. His vedute paintings still fetch very high prices at art auctions. © Meisterdrucke
