Description This charming British Victorian oil painting is by exhibited female artist Jane Vivian. Painted circa 1885 the composition is the Grand Canal Venice with the Rialto Bridge in the background. In the foreground are colourful boats and figures, surrounded by the magnificent achitecture of Victorian Venice under a summer sky.

Connecting the sestieri of San Marco and San Polo, it has been rebuilt several times since its first construction as a pontoon bridge in the 12th century, and is now a significant tourist attraction in the city.
