Butti's Trieste


Lorenzo Butti (Trieste 1805-1860)
"Navi nel Golfo di Trieste"
Oil on canvas

Ships, sailing boats, steamers and fishing boats in the gulf of foregone times.
I took this picture of Butti's
painting during my last visit to the Museo Revoltella, during an exhibition held of maritime scenes of Trieste and Venice.

An amazing painting and you've done well photographing it. Love the colors in this. I want it :)

I have yet to learn how to take a photo of a painting without light bouncing off the oil paint. Great shot of a fantastic painting.

Is there a way for you to take a photo of the gulf from the painting's angle? Would love to see how they compare.
