Luca Carlevaris

Udine 1665 - Venedig 1731


Luca Carlevaris (1665-1731), painter, etcher and architect from Udine, moved to Venice in 1679, where he lived in the palace of his aristocratic patron Zenobio (hence he was also called Luca da Ca'Zenobio). His mathematical and technical understanding was underlined by numerous jobs as building surveyor in Conegliano, Udine and Venice.
Between 1685 and 1690 Luca Carlevaris probably stayed in Rome, where he might have been taught vedute painting by Gaspare van Wittel (Vanvitelli). Carlevaris increasingly focused on this genre and reached great fame towards the end of the 17th century.
His earliest verifiable work was a sequence of vedute entitled "Le Fabriche e Vedute di Venezia" with over a hundred etchings of the most famous Venetian buildings and sights, published in 1703.
Luca Carlevaris' great merit was the integration of new technical means of perception into the creative process of art. The consistent use of a camera obscura for a more detailed representation of the motif always furnished his vedute with a distinct documentary character.
