1830 Gouache Souvnirs of Naples - Villa Nazionale / Napoli da sogna Posillico / Napoli da Mergellina / Napoli dal Carmina
Gouache - Nicht signiert - 1830

Four original 1830's gouache paintings, souvenirs of Naples.
Neapolitan School, Mount Vesuvius, Bay of Naples. Early 19th Century.
These miniature gouaches or 'guazzo' of the Neapolitan School were souvenirs for tourists.

These paintings are intensely colourful and animated by small figures, which is typical of the vedute style that flourished in Naples during this period to meet popular demand from wealthy Grand Tourists for souvenirs of the city. The anonymous artists of the Neapolitan School employed specific motifs and colours which today can be considered a unique, iconic visual language.

The four views show:
1) Villa Nazionale
2) Napoli da sogna Posillico
3) Napoli da Mergellina
4) Napoli dal Carmina

Images 2 and 3 include Vesuvius in an early state of eruption, bathing the scenes in a warm pink light. Neapolitan fisherfolk, onlookers, locals are occupied in the foreground. Vesuvius as spectacle and its place in literary and mythological tradition dating back to ancient Rome, makes for a particularly powerful pictorial icon, appealing especially to the Romantic imagination of the early 19th century.

Each painting including black border is 13 x 9 cm.
