Description

"Canaletto" means "Little Canal" (a mononym used by painter Giovanni Antonio Canal) and the artist has depicted a small bridge, on a small canal in Venice, Italy, viewed through ancient Corinthian columns.

Hedwig B. Eibuschitz used a sandpaper aquatint to soften the composition and removed any defined lines. That, in addition to the blue black ink, creates a serene image, viewed in the moonlight through the dimness of night.

This image of Venice at night is perhaps a view of the Ponte del Paradiso or even the infamous Ponte Delle Tette.
