The Canale delle Barche, Mestre


RCIN 907490

This drawing shows the landing stage in Mestre that also appears in his etching. Canaletto made many drawings of the townscapes and riverbanks of the Venetian mainland. The drawings were probably not conceived as direct preparatory studies, but later served as sources for Canaletto’s etched plates.
