Prospectus a Columna S. Theodori ad ingessum Magni Canalis No.12
Venice ca. 1780
270 x 430 mm
First published in 1735 one of a series of views of Venice after the drawings of Canaletto with the general title of “Urbis Venetiarum Prospectus Celebriores ex Antonii Canal”. Visentini enjoyed a long career in Venice where he was connected to the Academia and to the artistic and publishing circle centred around Consul Joseph Smith, who commissioned the publishing of these prints. Visentini’s etchings are distinguished in the confidence and authority of their perspectival projection and etched line.
