More about this artwork
No other place evokes more potently than Venice the downfall of Italy’s once powerful city states and artistic centres. The city’s loss of political independence under Napoleon, and the constant threat to its buildings posed by the sea, made Venice the Romantic embodiment of transience par excellence. This painting combines well-known Venetian motifs to form an atmospheric capriccio.
