[I. - Santa Maria della Salute.]
Wilfred Huggins [signed inside plate in pencil.] W.H
[MDCCCCXXIII.] W.R. Howell & Co.
Etching, in original mount attached to top of margins at corners. Sheet 360 x 460mm (14 x 18") large margins. Glued to original mount.
From: "A Series of Etchings made in Venice by Mr. Wilfrid Huggins." Limited Edition: 206. Here is seen one of the few open spaces on the Grand Canal, used and enjoyed by the general public. The Church of Santa Maria della Salute, whose façade is shown, is bold and imposing in appearance and in situation. It is endeared to the Venetians, having been erected in 1630 to commemorate prayers offered and answered for the rescue of the city from a devastating plague. So prominent a feature in the architectural aspect of the canal be ignored, and in the common experience, ends by being loved. The square fronting the Church, for many hours during the day shows dramatic variations in sunlight and shadow.
