This is a good period copy of a subject that Canaletto repeated several times and depicts the Market Square and Antica Posta in the Port of Mestre on the Venetian Lagoon. This is still the main staging post for goods and visitors going to the main city of Venice and has been a busy commercial centre for many hundreds of years. Good period copies of works by the Great Master are rarer than the many 19th and 20th Century copies seen on the market today, but all remain extremely popular and highly decorative.
