Paintings "Building streets"

Building and street scenes are also considered to be veduta painting. Inner city depictions of buildings and places provide realistic representations, as did later the photograph or postcard. By contrast, there is the capriccio in which separate elements of architecture are assembled as one pleases. Nevertheless, veduta painting is in this genre. In the 18th century, the veduta became the "postcard" of English tourists of Italy and experienced here its peak.
