veduta

(Italian: "view"), detailed, largely factual painting, drawing, or etching depicting a city, town, or other place. The first vedute probably were painted by northern European artists who worked in Italy, such as Paul Brill (1554-1626), a landscape painter from Flanders who produced a number of marine views and scenes of Rome that were purchased by visitors.
