1. The Letter of the Moor (c.1751). Pietro Longhi (Venetian, 1702-1783). Oil on canvas. Museo del Settecento Veneziano, Ca’ Rezzonico, Venice.

    The setting of this domestic seen is unassuming. The presence of a “painting within a painting” is striking and provides evidence of the fashion for landscapes in the idiom of Zuccarelli.
