Print reproduction of The Palazzo Balbi on the Grand Canal, Venice, by JMW Turner (1775-1851), part of the Scottish National Gallery Collection D NG 873

Turner achieved a delicate balance between broad suggestion and descriptive detail in his depiction of this magnificent stretch of the Grand Canal. The play of light and shadow emphasises the architectural structure of its many palaces and their reflections becoming less distinct as they recede into the distance. The gondolas in the foreground are suggested with wonderful economy and are echoed by others moored at intervals along the route. This drawing relates to others made during Turner's last visit to the city in 1840
