Bellotti is first documented in Toulouse in 1749 but was almost certainly born in Venice, probably around 1725. Like his brother and uncle, the artist specialised in views of Italian cities, and exhibited his works at the Paris Salon in 1755, 1760, 1765, 1774 and 1790, usually working in a blonde palette. Many of his views are based on engravings by both Michele Marieschi and Antonio Visentini. The present work follows Visentini's print of 1735 but introduces an additional boat with a mast in the foreground and a quay with figures in the lower right corner.
