VENETIAN SCHOOL, 19TH CENTURY
VIEW OF THE RIALTO BRIDGE FROM THE NORTH WITH THE PALAZZO DEI CAMERLENGHI, VENICE
oil on canvas
canvas: 36⅜ by 43¼ in.; 92.4 by 109.9 cm.
framed: 45½ by 51½ in.; 115.6 by 130.8 cm.
The canvas appears to be thinly lined. The bright colors are preserved and the canvas presents a decorative image that reads well. Some minor retouches scattered in the water and in the shadows of the foreground fluoresce under UV light, but these are not visible to the naked eye. A few finely applied retouches are scattered in the sky addressing the craquelure, which is stable. The painting is in overall good condition and can hang as is. Offered framed.

Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition.
