Venice Panorama

Black ink and watercolor on paper
Signed and dated "S. Bleekrode '18-'19" (upper right)

This impressive panorama of the great sites of Venice was composed by the celebrated Dutch artist Stefan Bleekrode. The work was composed from the island of Giudecca in the Venetian Lagoon, giving the artist a unique perspective of Venice's most famous structures. The famed Basilica di Santa Maria Della Salute occupies the left portion of the composition, while the Palazzo San Marco is situated at the center. The Riva degli Schiavoni can be glimpsed in the right portion of the work, while a number of other historic buildings line the canal and extend into the distance. Executed with an extraordinary level of detail, the work reveals Bleekrode's mastery of perspective and light as he deftly captures in perfect detail the character of this historic city.

The Dutch artist was born in 1986 and only recently pursued a full-time career as an artist. As a child around the age of 10, Bleekrode began his pursuit of perfecting the cityscape, creating birds-eye perspective drawings of architecture in pencil. In 2002, he traded pencil for ink, and around that same time fell under the influence of the works of American artist Edward Hopper. Hopper's desolate and thought-provoking artworks inspired Bleekrode's first full-scale cityscape. Shortly thereafter, he quickly gained renown for the exceptional level of detail and fascinating perspective imparted in his works.
