Francesco Guardi: 'A Gondola on the Lagoon near Mestre'

Explore the paintings

Two gondoliers wearing festival costume propel themselves across part of the Venetian lagoon. On the horizon is the tower of Malghera, near Mestre on the mainland (see also Guardi 'View of the Venetian Lagoon with the Tower of Malghera').

This painting is likely to be a late work (after 1780) and comparable with a work of higher quality but similar in style and date in Milan, Museo Poldi Pezzoli.
