John Singer Sargent: Street in Venice, 22'' Canvas Print, Framed
This framed print of John Singer Sargent's Street in Venice (1882) is part of our Masterworks collection of reproductions, specially created using the Gallery's finest quality digital imaging. The image was printed to Gallery specifications and the frame was selected as a style appropriate to the period.
Street in Venice, created during the second of Sargent's numerous visits to that city, was done on the spot. Mediterranean sunshine penetrates the narrow confines of the Calle Larga dei Proverbi, a back alley near the Grand Canal. One of two men conversing in the shadows is distracted by a girl strolling alone. Her skirt's rustling hem and shawl's flowing fringe are rendered with indistinct strokes that suggest her rapid pace will soon carry her beyond his lingering gaze. This combination of technical skill and emotional intensity goes far toward explaining why Sargent received more honors and medals than any previous artist, European or American.
