    The fishing town of Chioggia sits at the southern end of the Laguna Venta. James Reid remarks 'The bold geometry and vivid colours of the [Chioggian] buildings attracted Seago. Walls and facades became, with decisive brushstrokes or firm applications of the palette knife, harmonies of squares and rectangles with masts, arches and windows providing linear variations.' (James W. Reid, Edward Seago, The Landscape Art, Phillip Wilson Publishers, London, 1991, p.201).
