    Where purchased by the present owner

    The composition of the present view relates closely to Canaletto's painting which was acquired by Consul Smith for George III and now hangs at Windsor Castle. The vessels and figures on the Canal here, however, differ significantly from the earlier version.

    Beyond the Salute, on the same side of the Canal, can be seen the tall tower of the Palazzo Venier della Torreselle, built in the 15th century and demolished in the 19th century. It adjoined the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni. In the distance is the campanile of the church of the Carità.
