Francesco Zuccarelli arrived in Venice from central Italy in 1732 and his talents were soon noticed by Smith. This drawing is one of a set of five large landscapes commissioned by Smith: they were destined not for an album but to be framed and hung, and daylight has caused the blue paper to discolour to brown.
