The Tower of Babel, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, 1563, From the collection of: Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien
The Tower Of Babel shows the architectural dream of King Nimrod that was to build the Tower Of Babel, which would reach to the heavens and would be praised by God.
View of the Château de Fontainebleau, Pierre-Denis Martin, 1718/1723, From the collection of: Château de Fontainebleau
The Château de Fontainebleau shows the the gardens, the village and the forest where the Kings of France would come to hunt. Its beauty is undeniable thats why I chose it.
The Bucintoro at the Molo on Ascension Day, Canaletto (Giovanni Antonio Canal), Italian (active Venice, Rome, and England), 1697 - 1768, c. 1745, From the collection of: Philadelphia Museum of Art
The Bucintoro was the ceremonial boat of the Doge, the ruler of the Venetian Republic. The bell tower was struck by lighting in 1745, and it all still looks beautiful, It was captured amazingly.
Interior of a Gothic Church, Neeffs, Peeter the elder, c.1630s, From the collection of: Dulwich Picture Gallery
This church based on the Cathedral of Notre-dame, it is simply beautiful, and I love that you get the feeling of endless in it.
Cathedral of Saint John at 's-Hertogenbosch, Pieter Jansz Saenredam, 1646, From the collection of: National Gallery of Art, Washington DC
The Cathedral of Saint John at 's-Hertogenbosch simply caught my eye by how incredibly difficult must of been to create the sense of the space of the architecture, the use of light and color are great
The Ruins of the Kreuzkirche in Dresden, Bernardo Bellotto, 1765, From the collection of: Kunsthaus Zürich
The Kreuzkirche was heavily damaged by cannon fire during the Seven Years' War. What I love about this painting its that you can see the suffering of the tour, is almost like his guts were out.
Architectural Veduta, Francesco di Giorgio Martini (attributed), around 1490, From the collection of: Gemäldegalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
The amazing thing about this painting its the perfect sense of space in it. The use of colors of light were used perfect.
Ca d'Oro, José Moreno Carbonero, ca. 1897, From the collection of: Museo Carmen Thyssen Málaga
Ca d'Oro just caught my attention at first sight, the brightness of the colors and the details in it are amazing. This "palazze" of the Venice Canal its simply marvelous.
Capriccio with ruins of the Roman Forum, Claude LORRAIN, c.1634, From the collection of: Art Gallery of South Australia
I love this painting because it shows raw Roman architecture, and even though its in ruins you are still amazed by it and its beautiful. Plus, the Colosseum on the back does it for me, big fan.
Vienna Viewed from the Belvedere Palace, Bernardo Bellotto, called Canaletto, 1759/1760, From the collection of: Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien
This is the most well-known view of Vienna. It's incredible how even though its far you still get a lot of details of the buildings and get the sense of depth and space in it.
The Grand Canal from Palazzo Balbi towards the Rialto, Antonio Canal detto Canaletto, c. 1722, From the collection of: Ca' Rezzonico - Museum of the 18th century Venice
This other perspective of the Gran Canal of Venice its a little darker, but still beautiful. The old and rusty architectures are still perfect to the eyes.
