Antonio Reyna

Antonio Maria de Reyna Manescau, paintings of Venice
In his early 20’s, Spanish painter Antonio María de Reyna Manescau received a grant to study art in Rome for a time, and settled there permanently.

Though he was based in Rome, he spent much of his time painting the architectural wonder that is Venice, as it appeared in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

When I encountered his work, I immediately thought of Martin Rico. Though I don’t know if they ever met, it’s clear that Rico’s work had an impact on the younger artist.

The best background information, and some of the best images, I’ve found for Reyna are on the Museo CarmenThyssen site. There is also a good bio in English on Lawrence Steigrad Fine Art. The next best image source is Wikimedia Commons.
