Lorenzo Fratellini

View of Livorno from the side of the Lighthouse by Lorenzo Fratellini, Council chamber, Town Hall, Livorno
We have already seen the busts and the reliefs of our Council chamber, today we are looking at its only painting. It is a large oil on canvas (cm 165 x 255) titled “Veduta di Livorno dalla parte del Fanale” (View of Livorno from the side of the Lighthouse) dated in the first half of the 18th century and attributed to the Florentine painter Lorenzo Fratellini.

I just think that the mountains is something I have not thought about before. But there they are:)
