Frederico Del Campo was born in XIX in the territory of South America, Peru is considered to be his birthplace, it is there that he is best known as an artist of a diverse genre. Europeans Frederico Campo is known as the author of the most wonderful landscapes about Venice, which the artist could only write when he was 30 years old, at the mercy of a local governor who paid him a ticket for a steamer to Europe, which at that time cost fabulous money.
The artist traveled almost all the countries of the continent, but he left a special impression only from Venice, to which he dedicated a whole collection of paintings, calling them “Views of Venice”.
In each of the paintings the artist diligently conveys the images of the city on the water, capturing it the way its inhabitants and travelers saw at the end of the 19th century. The majestic buildings, narrow lanes, with such small balconies, that people can easily reach their neighbor opposite them, if they wish, with a stretched arm.
Beautiful medieval gondolas, long streets stretching along endless canals, lanterns, peaks of houses – all this attracts and fascinates not only the eye of the artist, but also quite an ordinary person.
The artist managed to capture not only the landscapes, but also the last sailing ships, which are almost impossible to see today. Masts of sailboats, reflected in the waters of the channel, making the picture more realistic and at the same time fantasy, and I want to get there and stand behind the artist, seeing with my own eyes the process of creating such a beautiful piece.
Frederico’s paintings exude light, sparkling with liveliness and something real, they convey to the audience the beauty of Venice better than any photograph, according to the artist of one of the best cities in the world. On each canvas there are a lot of details that not only do not get lost, but also sufficiently make up for each other, thanks to the bottomless blue sky, the depth of which is literally amazing.
