Lot Essay

Each year on 21 November, the feast of the Presentation of the Virgin, the Doge of Venice made a state visit to Santa Maria della Salute to renew the thanks of the City to the Virgin for their deliverance from the plague of 1630. A bridge of boats was thrown across the Grand Canal for the occasion.

This composition would appear to be based on Canaletto's Ingresso al Canal Grande (A. Corborz, Canaletto: Una Venezia Immaginaria, Milan, 1985, II, p. 623, no. P191, illustrated).
