Lot Essay

Bison arrived in Venice in 1779 to study drawing and perspective at the Academy and, as the last great exponent of the veduta, he infused his talent as a draftsman and watercolorist to bring the genre into the 19th Century. Enhancing the perspectival carachter of the Piazza, this vivid and quintessential view of San Marco was particularly coveted by the Grand Tourist travelling to Venice at the end of the century.
