Quick Reference

(It.: ‘view’).

Term applied to a representation of a town or landscape that is essentially topographical, specifically one that is faithful enough to allow the location to be identified (an imaginary but realistic-looking view can be called a veduta ideata). Painters of vedute (for example Canaletto and Guardi) are called vedutisti.

Subjects: Art.
