Catalogue Note

This and the following lot are among the artist's largest works. Domenichini's inclusion of the balustrade in front of the church of San Geremia and the statue of the 14th century martyr, Saint John Nepomuk to the left of the entrance of the Canareggio provide a useful terminus post quem for this painting. The statue was erected by Giovanni Marchiori in 1742 and thus the painting must have executed after that date.

A similar composition by the artist, painted from the same viewpoint, though much smaller in dimensions and with variations in the arrangement of the gondolas, is offered in this sale, lot 60.

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