Catalogue Note

This is a very good example of a Bison capriccio and the use of wash a macchia is very characteristic.  Surely done for collectors and sold in the art market, this kind of drawing, together with his oils on paper, must have provided a good source of income for Bison.   He was a very prolific draftsman and his style shows a strong link with previous Venetian painters such as Canaletto, Guardi and Ricci.  It appears that Tito Miotti had a large collection of Bison's works on paper, possibly acquired from a single source.
