oil on plywood. Signed at the bottom right. View of a bridge that crosses a canal in the middle of the woods; above the bridge there are masked figures, below is a gondola. Born into a family of artists and artistically trained in Venice, Paoletti later moved to Milan, where he continued his career, devoting himself not only to painting but also to illustrating magazines. The Venetian theme remained a recurring theme in his painting: maintaining the link with Venetian vedutista painting of the late 19th century, Paoletti translated the views of his city into forms of colour and lights. Coeval frame.
