A fine and large watercolor showing a panoramic aerial view of the city of Florence looking over rooftops towards the misty hills of Careggi and Fiesole. To the left of Brunelleschi's Duomo stands Giotto's tower and, to the right, the fortified keep of the Palazzo Vecchio. This wonderful work has an effortless and elegant simplicity that belies the complexity of the challenging composition. Signed lower right, "G. Lapinez" and inscribed on verso, "Giuseppe Lapinez, Firenze." Unframed.
