Large 19th Century Photograph of Venice
Item Number: 13935
Original 19th Century photograph showing a Venice canal and Palace. The photograph is very large, measuring 10-1/2"x14" and mounted on heavy cardboard to an overall size of 14"x20". Shows a view of Palazzo Ca' D'oro in Venice from the canal, with the palace reflecting a mirror image in the water. the Ca' D'oro (or Palazzo Santa Sofia) is one of the oldest palaces in Venice and today is a public museum. This photograph shows it prior to extensive restorations which occurred in the 1890s, and shows a markedly lower waterline than is visible today. Catalogue numbered in the lower left hand corner within the photo "13. Venezia/ Piazzo Ca Doro." Another image of the same size and condition is on the verso, labeled within the photo "129. Venezia/Interno S. Marco." Moderate staining and warping to cardboard, but photograph itself is in fine condition.
