  • Copied from one of the series of twelve views of the Grand Canal painted by Canaletto c.1728-c.1734 for Consul Smith (cf. After Canaletto P492 and P495). Although engraved by Visentini, it appears to have been copied from the original before it left Italy c.1762, as the colours are closely imitated.
