    The present pair of vedute may be compared stylistically to two works which Charles Beddington has given to the Lyon Master, who apparently worked in the immediate circle of Bernardo Bellotto and his younger brother, Pietro: a View of the Grand Canal looking North from the Palazzo Rezzonico to the Palazzo Balbi of circa 1743 (12 x 170 cm., Museé des Beaux Arts, Lyons); and a View of the Molo with the Doge's Palace, very similar to the first of the present compositions, but with a difference in the staffage and in the cloud formations (Sotheby's, London, 14 December, 2000, lot 90, 47.3 x 73.7 cm., with a companion depicting the Bacino di San Marco, as Bernardo Bellotto). See Charles Beddington, 'Bernardo Bellotto and his Circle in Italy, Part II: The Lyon Master and Pietro Bellotti', Burlington Magazine, CXLVII, No. 1222, January 2005.

    The View of the Grand Canal with San Geremia relates to three versions of the composition by Antonio Canal which have been dated to between 1738 and 1742, the latter being when a balustrade and statue were added to the church quay: Collection of H.M. the Queen, Windsor (46.5 x 78.5 cm., with the additional balustrade and statue); with Kleinberger, New York, 1941 (39 x 52 cm., omitting the boat in the centre foreground); and in the National Gallery, London (47 x 75 cm., with small differences to the boats and with additional flags on the campanile).
