About this Piece
A specially commissioned oil painting on canvas interpreting Venice: The Doge's Palace and the Riva deli Schiavoni by Canaletto. The original is thought to be of the late 1730s and one of his later works of grand Venice scenes portraying the city's pageantry and waning traditions, making innovative use if atmospheric effects and strong local colours.
The buildings are (from left to right): the column of St Mark; the Doge's Palace; the Ponte della Paglia; the prisons; the uncompleted church of the Pietà (S. Maria della Visitazione) can be seen along the Riva degli Schiavoni. The architecture in this area is a generalised version of that which can actually be seen there. In front of the Ponte della Paglia is a temporary hut and a knife-grinder's stall.
The canvas has been stretched and mounted in a reeded moulding.
