Zocchi probably did not wait for the publication of his drawings to execute multiple copies in oil on canvas, most for the use of his patron and of himself than for trade, unlike the practice of the Venetian vedutisti. These paintings in a style inspired by Marieschi and Canaletto restore the brightness of the Florentine sky and the reflections in the water.
On January 28 in New York, Christie's sells a view of the Arno, oil on canvas 57 x 88 cm, lot 46 estimated $ 1M. An article published by the auction house shows many interesting details of this artwork.
The river is animated with many Renaioli, these flat Florentine boats where teams of men, women and even horses work to clean the Arno from its sand and detritus. In the background the main monuments are shown in a painstaking realism.
