The Ca’ d’Oro, or Golden House, is famous for the intricate and delicate tracery which was originally gilded. Arms delineated the façade with masterful precision, creating an extraordinary breadth of tone through linework alone. The palazzo’s rich repetitive pattern and cursive design is emphasized and the building occupies almost the entire space, flattening the scene. The narrow foreground, filled with a meticulously detailed reflection of the palazzo, reinforces the two-dimensionality of the composition.
