A fine original watercolor of the famous Campanile di San Marco by the listed European artist S. Leoncini. This remarkable watercolor measures 4 ¼ x 12 1/8 inches, approximately. Sold unframed. Excellent condition. The original frame was backed with newspaper dated 1885 which reflects the approximate age of this work. Signed by the artist in the lower right corner. The detail is utterly amazing. This is watercolor painting at its finest. Great subject matter. An excellent addition to any quality Italian watercolor (watercolour) collection.
A little about the scene:
Giotto’s bell tower (campanile) stands on the Cathedral square (Piazza del Duomo) in Florence, Italy.
This bell tower is one of the showpieces of the Florentine gothic style. Standing isolated next to the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore and in front of the Baptistery of St. John, this splendid construction attracts the eye and the admiration of every art lover by its design, rich sculptural decorations and the many-coloured marble encrustations.
This slender structure stands on a square plan with a side of 14.45 meters (47.41 ft). It attains a height of 84.7 meters (277.9 ft) sustained by four polygonal buttresses at the corners. These four vertical lines are crossed by four horizontal lines, dividing the tower in five levels.
