Emanuele Brugnoli (Bologna, 1859 – 1944) was an Italian painter, mainly of vedute of cityscapes of Venice and Northern Italy.


He was a close friend of Fabio Mauroner, another modern Venetian vedutista. His paintings have an impressionist style, but his etchings and engravings are far more detailed and accurate. In 1886, at the Promotrice of Florence, he displayed a painting of the Bacino di San Marco.[1] At the sixth International Exposition of Venice (1906), he displayed a Silenzi Veneziani.[2]

Brugnoli moved to Venice in 1880, and began teaching at the Accademia of Venice in 1912, teaching etching. In 2011, Mauroner and Brugnoli were featured in an exhibition (The Heirs of Canaletto: Fabio Mauroner and Emanuele Brugnoli in Venice, 1905-1940) at the Italian Embassy in Washington D.C., which took place at the same time that an exhibit titled Canaletto and his rivals was being held at the National Gallery in the same city.[3]
