This is a beautiful oil that realistically captures the grandeur of Venetian Architecture.
Measures 940 mm x 320 mm

Construction of San Giovanni Crisostomo began in 1497 and was the last church built by Mauro Codussi, one of the most important architects of the early Renaissance in Venice. The original church on the site, founded in 1080, was destroyed by fire in 1475 and Codussi was chosen to complete the reconstruction. Codussi chose to organize the structure following a Greek-cross plan, with four equal, short arms rather than a long nave; this not only fit the spatial constraints of the site, but also allowed for an intimate worship space for the parish’s small working-class congregation. Lack of space led Codussi to flatten the central apse of the church; he also framed the apse with smaller vaulted chapels. Construction was nearly completed around the time of Codussi’s death in 1504.
