Venice: The Giudecca with the Zitelle
This painting is part of the group: Two Views of Venice

Beyond Venice's Grand Canal, bustling with gondolas and sailing boats, is the church of Santa Maria della Presentazione. Better known as the Zitelle, it was originally attached to a foundling hospital for girls and was built in the 16th century.

This is the pendant to 'Venice: The Punta della Dogana'. Both pictures are thought to have been painted in the 1780s.
