'A View of Florence from the North Bank of the Arno'


The idyllic view of Florence by François-Xavier Fabre recalls the serene classical landscapes of French painters, Claude and Poussin. Fabre draws the viewer’s attention from the shaded foreground to the sun-lit river and city, set against a hazy backdrop of snowy peaks. By the weir is a 14th-century watermill, which was destroyed in the 19th-century to build the luxury hotel, Lungarno Vespucci. In the distance, you can see the Palazzo Signoria, and to the left is the dome of the famous cathedral, Santa Maria del Fiore.
