Venice: the Molo from the Bacino di S. Marco

A copy of a picture by Canaletto now in the Brera, Milan. There are six other closely related compositions by Canaletto, and he used the same view for the setting of the ceremony of the Bucintoro returning to the Molo. Many studio versions of the view are known, including a work of similar quality recently on the art market (Christie’s, London, 10 July 1998 (81), as attributed to Canaletto and Studio)....
