There is a striking contrast with bright sunlight and shadow with this Venetian canal scene. The gondola on the narrow canal is in the area of shadow as it passes through the archway. The iconic architecture, whether in sunlight or shadow, is depicted in an Impressionist manner and the linear perspective gives depth to the narrow vista.
