Antonio Joli’s oeuvre includes paintings that feature sharply rendered views of Italy’s architectural marvels and sweeping views of the Mediterranean Sea. One of Italy’s premier vedute (detailed renderings of places) and capricci (fictitious architectural settings) painters, Joli was born in Modena and enjoyed a peripatetic existence, studying in Rome with Giovanni Paolo Pannini and later working in Spain and Venice. Joli’s landscapes and architectural paintings take viewers to panoramic outlooks that highlight the magnanimity of human existence against a backdrop of majestic Mediterranean scenery. He enlivened his paintings with human activity, imbuing each cluster of figures and animals with a vibrancy and sense of narrative.
