This painting is part of the group: Two Fanciful Scenes
As a view painter, Marieschi was influenced by his fellow Venetian, Canaletto. The picture, with its pendant 'Buildings and Figures near a River with Rapids', is intended as a decorative landscape and the scene represented is a fanciful invention. Both paintings can be dated towards the end of the artist's short life.
