Martín Rico y Ortega, while Spanish by birth, was drawn to Venice as generations of tourists have been since the advent of the Grand Tour. Between 1873 and his death in 1908, Rico painted in Venice nearly every summer. He was constantly searching for the best vantage points for his compositions, and he often painted from bridges and gondolas. 

The present lot, which has been dated to circa 1905, is one of Rico's late works. Standing resolute in the background with its fluted Corinthian columns and campanile with pyramidal spire is the Church of San Vidal, located off the Grand Canal in the sestiere of San Marco near the Ponte dell'Accademia, where Rico frequently painted during his late period. The Church of San Vidal can be found in a number of compositions by the artist in the last three years of his life.
