Footnotes

  • Ever since the days of the Grand Tour in the eighteenth century, a huge appetite for views of Venice developed among the public. Visitors to Italy liked to have a pictoral record of their travels. Birket Foster went on frequent painting tours around the Continent, often in the company of friends and family and he had a particular fondness for Venice.

    In the present work, Foster beautifully captures a bright, tranquil day in Venice. In the foreground a gondola drifts quietly past while the soaring dome of Longhena's maginificent basilica Santa Maria della Salute dominates the horizon.
