About the Work

Located off the tourist-trodden path, the harbour basin Sacca della Misericordia was a popular place of residence for the wealthy. A area rather uncharacteristic of Venice, it was a rare subject for painted veduti except in the work of Francesco Guardi. Yet the style is too monotonous and uniform to allow an attribution to Guardi, whose manner is characterized by greater diversity and suspense. It is therefore believed to be a work by one of the master’s successors, who may have copied it from a Guardi drawing unknown to us today.
