The Po from my studio in Turin

Il Po dal mio studio di Torino

P. Canonica

Material and technique: 
Oil on wood
inv. C. 302

The view of the Po from the artist’s studio in Turin was probably painted at the beginning of his career, when he was still attending the Albertina Accademy (datable to the end of the XIX century). The painting fits entirely into the style of the school of landscape painting common in Turin in the late nineteenth century and in particular the work Vittorio Avondo and of Lorenzo Delleani.

The hall

Corridoio piano terra

In the small corridor which connects the Room of the fireplace to the Studio, there are displayed along the walls: thirteen figured autograph paintings by the artist, several landscapes of the countryside around Viterbo, a seascape of the Forte dei Marmi, a view of the Po from the artist’s studio in Turin, particularly interesting for the period in which Canonica was attending the Academy, and a painting representative of the title Sister Luigina at the Fortezzuola.
