Caspar van Wittel

For the plan to host a big Caspar van Wittel exhibition in Amersfoort in autumn 2015 we made a bidbook. This painter from Amersfoort is practically forgotten as he moved to Italy and made his career there with his landscape, or Vedute, painting. We aimed to emphasise his unique and peculiar pastel/gouache colour use for the picture backgrounds. By turning the orientation of the book we accommodate the dimensions of the painting but also play with the term ‘landscape’ as regarded in page-orientation.
