VIENNA.- If one adds to an attractive subject painted by an outstanding artist the fact that it has been in an Italian private collection for over 100 years, then everything is just perfect. This is precisely the case with a work by the Venetian painter Luigi Querena at the Dorotheum sale of 19th century paintings on 9th November 2021. 528,000 euros mark a world record for the history painting ‘The Blessed Doge Francesco Morosini leaving Venice in 1693 to Fight the Turks on the Peloponnese’, which measures 132 x 190 cm. In addition to topographical details, it also depicts the ship of the eccentric Doge who loved his cat and went into battle with it.

Luigi Querena (1824-1890) specialised in traditional Venetian views, earning a reputation for reviving the subjects made popular by Canaletto.
