Martin Rico y Ortega (1833-1908) was a Spanish painter known for his landscapes and cityscapes, particularly those of Venice. Born in Madrid, Rico y Ortega studied at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid and later in Paris, where he was influenced by the Barbizon School and the work of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. He was also influenced by the work of Juan Antonio de Ribera and Federico de Madrazo, who introduced him to Mariano Fortuny, a fellow painter who would become a close friend and collaborator.

Rico y Ortega's work is characterized by its attention to detail and the artist's ability to capture the essence of his subjects and the emotions evoked by the scenes. He was particularly renowned for his depictions of Venice, which captured the city's unique light and atmospheric effects. His cityscapes, replete with colored reflections in the canals, shimmer in the Venetian light, but there is also clarity of form that distinguishes these images from the misty depictions of other artists.

Some of his most famous works include "Canal in Venice" and "The Grand Canal, Venice". These paintings are celebrated for their technical skill and the artist's ability to capture the essence of his subjects and the emotions evoked by the scenes.

Rico y Ortega's contributions to the art world, particularly in the genre of landscape and cityscape painting, have solidified his reputation as a prominent figure in the history of Spanish art. His unique approach to painting and his dedication to capturing the beauty of life have influenced generations of artists. Rico y Ortega's work continues to captivate art enthusiasts and has cemented his reputation as a master of Spanish art.
