Catalogue Note

Antonietta Brandeis was Czech and a pupil of the history painter Karel Javurek (1815-1909) of Prague. After the death of her father, her family moved to Venice where she would enroll as an art student in the Venetian Academy of Fine Arts. It is here where she developed as a meticulous vedutista, creating landscape scenes filled with intricate details that captured the luminosity and beauty of Venice. This painting is exemplary of her training, and shows the first curve in the Grand Canal when coming from Piazza San Marco. The beautifully depicted buildings to the left are Ca' Rezzonico,  Palazzo Nani Bernardo, Palazzo Giustinian, followed by Ca' Foscari until reaching Palazzo Balbi.

We are grateful to Charles Beddington for endorsing the attribution on the basis of photographs.
