Venice: Piazza San Marco

The Piazza San Marco is shown from the west. In the centre of the composition are the façade of the basilica of S. Marco and the campanile. On the left are the Procuratie Vecchie and the Torre dell'Orologio; the Procuratie Nuove are on the right.

The style of this picture and the costumes of the figures suggest a date of execution after 1780. This is a version of a composition the artist treated on a number of occasions, see also 'Venice: Piazza San Marco'.
