Canal and Bridge of S.S. Apostoli, Venice

A view of a bridge over a narrow canal filled with gondolas and barges. There are numerous figures on the bridge in the centre and the canal is densely lined with tall buildings, whose architectural details are well rendered. The strong sunlight from top right creates a dramatic chiaroscuro effect on the buildings, bridge and the canal.
