Aldine became very popular owing to his sensitive understanding of Venice. Not only did he capture the activity and glamour of the Grand Canal and the Santa Maria Della Salute but he also caught the atmosphere and serenity of the backwaters. His paintings demonstrate his architectural skill whilst reflecting his love of Venice’s unique light effects.
His works are broad and confidently painted, capturing all the charm of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. He exhibited throughout France and Italy as well as many provincial European galleries during his own lifetime
