The drawing is a variant of the previous sheet. Canaletto transformed the church, retaining only the arcaded apse and changing all the details into the language of Venetian gothic. A circular mausoleum now stands in the enlarged space beyond the church. The mannered penwork indicates that this is a late work, probably executed many years after the original pen drawing.
