Veduta | Il Vedutismo

Johannes Vermeer🎨 (Dutch Baroque Era painter, 1632-1675) | View of Delft, 1660-1661 | Mauritshuis, The-Hague

A veduta (Italian for "view"; plural vedute) is a highly detailed, usually large-scale painting or, more often, print of a cityscape or some other vista. The painters of vedute are referred to as vedutisti.
This genre of landscape originated in Flanders, where artists such as Paul Bril painted vedute as early as the 16th century.
In the 17th century, Dutch painters🎨 made a specialty of detailed and accurate recognizable city and landscapes that appealed to the sense of local pride of the wealthy Dutch middle class.
An archetypal example is Johannes Vermeer's🎨 View of Delft.
