Altra veduta della due piazza di San Marco visto dell'Orloge

DESCRIPTION: SOLD

Rare antique etching of St Mark's Square in Venice, Italy, looking much as it does today. The lagoon in the foreground, at left the Biblioteca Marciana with the campanile behind, and at right the Doge's palace; with some gondolas moored to the quay. Far right shows the stern of a large sailing vessel covered with a cloth awning.

Engraved and drawn by artist Israel Sylvestre (1621-1691). Published by Pierre Mariette (1634-1716) 'avec privilege du Roy' in Paris. The print was likely published after 1663 when Sylvestre was appointed court painter and engraver by Louis XIV and would have been able to claim royal privilege. Number 10.
