About the Work

Dusk over Venice: the fishermen on the Canale Grande are hauling in their nets and the market women pause for a moment to gossip. Bathed in a warm light by the evening sun, the city, the water and the sky fuse into one. The delicate blue of the sky can scarcely be distinguished from the white of the limestone. Many nineteenth-century artists fell for the charms of the city on the lagoon with its waterways and magnificent palazzi. Friedrich Nerly lived there for over forty years, from 1837 until his death. His main works consist of cityscapes of Venice.
