Francesco Guardi: 'Venice: The Doge's Palace and the Molo'
This painting is part of the group: Two Views of Venice
To the right of the Doge's Palace are the state prisons, while to the left are the library, Zecca, and the State Granaries (now destroyed), before which is moored the ducal galley. It was used by the doge for all state occasions except the Ascension Day ceremony.

This work and its pendant, 'Venice: The Punta della Dogana' can be dated around 1770. A drawing (Venice, Museo Correr) includes some studies of figures and boats which are used in this painting.
