This paper is a report on compositional characteristics of the rivers and urban landscapes painted by Bernardo Bellotto. As a method for this study, the author made a comparison between the paintings by Bellotto and the real views based on the field survey. The results of the analysis are as follows: 1) Bellotto painted the riverside views both from upstream side and from downstream side. 2) He chose viewpoint, either toward the opposite bank or toward the stream, depending on the width of the river. 3) The significant facilities and architectures in the areas, including the bridges with novel design, were painted multiple times from different viewpoints.
