John Singer Sargent -- American painter
12 x 19 in.
Probably the most tourist view painting he did of Venice. We are looking sort of northwest from the lagoon. You can see the Palazzo Ducale and the campanile of San Marco to the right and the domed Santa Maria della Salute to the left.
Offered by Sothbeys but not sold; 5/27/1999; Lot 110; estimated $50,000-$75,000
The source didn't date
but it appears to be line with Venice
par temps gris as well as Cafe
on the Riva degli Schiavoni The darker ships and more brown
seems to be in line with 1880/1882
