LOTS 107-111: PROPERTY FROM A DISTINGUISHED VENETIAN PRIVATE COLLECTION
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.1
1. Tito Miotti is the author of a book on the collecting of drawings: Il collezionista di disegni, Udine 1962
