Long Venice; Etching, 5th of five states 
Whistler, James Abbott McNeill, 1834-1903
MetadataShow full item record
Long Venice shows the Grand Canal from Doge's Palace at the left of the church of Santa Maria della Salute at the right. The view is a mirror image of the actual scene; Whistler drew directly on the plate without reversing the image. In this fifth state, the plate was wiped to leave a slight film of ink, an effect which is noticeable in the foreground. The plate is known to have been canceled (Naylor).
