Catalogue Note

Childe Hassam visited Venice in 1883 while on tour through Europe. This trip yielded many watercolors (and some oils) which Hassam subsequently exhibited at the Boston gallery of Williams and Everett in a show titled Water Colors by Hassam. That show of 67 works, included six Venetian subjects; the present work may have been exhibited as On the Lagoon, no. 27 in the show.
