Francesco Aviani was a painter born in Venice but who had his most prosperous career in the Vicenza area, particularly as a fresco painter and landscape perspective painter.
Among his various works he decorated the interior of Villa Chiericati Milan in Sandrigo with frescoes in 1703, but it is in oil painting that his style emerges from the waters of his mind.
In his landscape works one can detect a nostalgic mood in depicting Venetian panoramas, fused together with figures belonging to an ancient past, with these ruins standing out amidst the rural landscape of the lush Venetian countryside.
Thanks to Aviani and a painter who inspired him for his natural landscapes, Marco Ricci, a taste for Emilian-style ruinism began to emerge in Veneto.
