Description:

a pair; These compositions are both slightly reduced derivations of the pen and ink drawings with wash, by Giovanni Antonio Canal, Canaletto (1697-1768), in the British Museum, London (inv. no. 1878,1228.4) and the Institute of Arts, Detroit (inv. no. 29.171).1 These were both engraved in the same sense as part of the six-part series Prospetti sei di altrettanti Templi di Venezia, by Joseph Wagner and Fabio Berardi in 1742.2 While the print of San Giorgio Maggiore is inscribed 'Canaletto delin.', relating it to the extant drawing, the engraving of San Simeone Piccolo is inscribed 'Canaletto pinx.', suggesting the existence of a painting, though this has never been traced.

Markings:

each with unidentified collector's red wax seals 'HB[?]'; silver wax seal 'RK' (2)
