This canal scene in Venice is remarkable for the architecture with its linear perspective and the rendition of stucco buildings adding up to a good pictorial effect. He had a mastery of urban streetscape painted in his Impressionistic style. The boats in harbour would be transporting goods to the island. There are gondolas as one would expect on a Venetian canal. The figures give movement and scale to the composition.
