Canaletto | The Molo Seen from the San Marco Basin, 1730

Canaletto | The Molo Seen from the San Marco Basin, 1730 | Louvre Museum, Paris

Canaletto (1697-1768)🎨 painted some ten versions of this subject, the most similar to this one being in the Uffizi in Florence.
The prototype for the series can be dated to around 1730.
Beginning in the 15th century, and especially in the 18th century, Venetian painters delighted in depicting parts of their city in exact detail.
The Rome-trained painter Luca Carlevaris (1663-1730) adopted the tradition in Venice and handed it on to his apprentice Antonio Canal, who combined it with experience gained from his father, a theatre set designer.

Gerard van Honthorst | Adoration of the Christ Child, 1619-1620

Gerard van Honthorst🎨 | Adoration of the Christ Child, 1619-1620 (detail) | Uffizi Gallery, Florence

Adoration of the Christ Child (Italian: Adorazione del Bambino), is a circa 1619-1621 oil on canvas painting of the Nativity by the Dutch🎨 Golden Age artist Gerard van Honthorst (1590-1656)🎨 in the collection of the Uffizi in Florence.
The Adoration of the Child shows a moonlit scene with Mary laying the Child in swaddling clothes.
Joseph is looking over her shoulder and two angels are leaning over the crib.
The moonlight is reflected off the faces in such a way that suggests the Child as a light source.
The composition is reminiscent of much earlier versions, such as the 1490 Nativity at Night by Geertgen tot Sint Jans.
