DescriptionAn 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. Signed and dated. On wove.
There is some light discolouration to the page and two large foxing spots visible to the upper edge, as shown. Pin holes to corners, and adhesive tape along the lower edge.
