Venice: The Molo and Riva degli Schiavoni, looking east


RCIN 907452

The viewpoint is the same as that of the drawing above, looking in the opposite direction along the Riva degli Schiavoni, the waterfront east of the Palazzo Ducale. To the left, the column of the Lion is increased in size and appears to tower over the Palazzo. Beyond are the prisons, followed by a jumble of buildings and boats. On the skyline are a dome and belltower, perhaps of San Giorgio dei Greci or San Pietro di Castello, though neither is visible from this position.
