    Although compositions by Zanin are known that are dated as late as the 1870s, his attention to architectural detail, marked by strong contrasts of light and shade, together with his choice of subject matter, remained heavily influenced by the tradition set by Canaletto a century earlier. Nonetheless, in the precision of his handling and in his greater attention to topographical accuracy he can be regarded as having added his own innovative stamp to the tradition of the 18th century vedute. His depictions of the grand Venetian palazzi are valued for the breathtaking detail and faultless perspective of their drawing.
