About this Piece
A specially commissioned reproduction oil painting on canvas by artist Liu Yingjie. For more information about Yingjie please see the additional information section below.
Interpretation of Venice: The Basin of San Marco on Ascension Day by Canaletto. The painting shows a view towards the Doge's Palace on the right, with Santa Maria della Salute and the entrance to the Grand Canal on the left. The annual ceremony of the Wedding of the Sea is about to take place. The official procession is making its way from the Doge's Palace to the state barge, the Bucintoro and the Doge's ceremonial umbrella is just visible in the crowd. The Doge will drop a gold ring from the barge to symbolise the marriage of Venice to the sea. The arms of the Doge Alvise Pisani, who ruled from 1735-41 are visible on the Bucintoro. These details and stylistic considerations give the approximate date of 1740 for Canaletto's original painting.
Framed in a gold foil / pewter effect Italian moulding.
