Ippolito Caffi Painting Original Authentic Rare Artwork Painting. Forgive me for not being an art genius but i will explain as much as possible with this painting.

The couple bought this piece while traveling. They were told it was real, so in turn so was I. It looks feels and smells old. Signature is of Ippolito Caffi. Does not appear to be a reproduction.

The edge of painting is not cut perfectly as you can see from photos of back. Painting on canvas is uneven around edges as well so it's unlikely a manufactured reproduction. Its a very uneven canvas and painting around edging appears all way around back where nailed in. If you look in between the two frames the canvas has been stapled onto inner frame. The top coat of painting has shrunk and become textured. I believe it to be an unreproduced original. I could not find a reproduction piece of this painting or even a print of this piece to compare to. Please if you are an art specialist feel free to contact and let me know what you think and how I can go about maybe finding out what I have. I have called around locally and we live in a small town so everyone here kinda just laughed when I asked about getting a piece of artwork looked at. Please let me know what you think. This piece is so beautiful regardless. Feel free to ask questions. He was born at Belluno. His first works were produced at the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice. By 1830, he had won awards for his vedute at the Academy. He subsequently moved to Rome, made some reputation by his treatise on perspective, as well as by his investigations on Roman archaeology.

In 1843 he visited Greece and the East (Athens, Constantinople, Syria, Egypt, and Malta). The first work of his that created a sensation was Carnival at Venice. This was exhibited at Paris in 1846, and was admired for its brilliant effects of light. Other works are his Panorama of Rome from Monte Mario, Isthmus of Suez, and Close of the Carnival at Rome.

He joined revolutionary movements in Venice in 1848, and had to retire into Piedmont. His aim of commemorating in paint the first Italian naval engagement was frustrated when the Re d' Italia, on which he traveled was destroyed on July 20, 1866, by Austro-Venetian fleet at the battle of Lissa, drowning him along with his comrades.
