    Private collection UK.

    Much like Canaletto two hundred years prior, Bouvard built his career around the ever-increasing popularity of Venice as a holiday destination and almost exclusively painted scenes of the city. Here he has captured the Riva degli Schiavoni, literally translating to shore of the Slavs, named after the Dalmatian population which settled here. This view is punctuated by the Doge's Palace, National Library of St Marks and the city gates, marked by the two pillars between the great buildings. These landmarks are symbolic of Venice's great wealth and power whilst a Republic between 697-1797, the architectural style also highlights the city's position as a meeting point between the East and the West.
