Olaf Havelock Barnett (1911-1979) - Framed 1969 Watercolour, Giudecca Canal



An expressive depiction of the Giudecca Canal and San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice by British artist Olaf Barnett. His additional use of gouache and pastel detail gives the composition a dramatic quality. An intense moonlight reflects off the river, dominating the centre of the artwork and creating an air of mystery. Well presented in a modern frame with a linen slip. Signed and dated. On watercolour paper.


There is some light discolouration to the page and two large foxing spots visible to the upper edge, as shown. With some scuff marks to the frame.


36.2 x 55.6cm (14.3" x 21.9")
Framed Size: 46.4 x 65.9cm (18.3" x 25.9")
