Venice, the Molo

BOUDIN, Louis Eugène (1824 - 1898)

Venice, the Molo

Date: 1895

Media: oil on canvas

Size: 33.5 x 57.0 cm

Acquired: 1952; Bequest; Gwendoline Davies

Accession Number: NMW A 2432

Collection: The Davies Sisters Collection

From a viewpoint on the Molo, this composition depicts shipping on the Giudecca Canal, the Dogana, Santa Maria della Salute, the mouth of the Grand Canal, the Giardinetti Reali and the façade of Sansovino's Zecca. During his visit to Venice, Boudin noticed how: '..a storm wraps everything in a grey and dull mist...the waters, which don't resemble those of the Mediterranean, are mostly green and do not differ from the waters of the Channel.' Gwendoline Davies purchased this work in Paris in 1912.
