Santa Maria della Salute

Francesco Guardi Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 644

Standing near the end of Venice’s Grand Canal, Santa Maria della Salute became one of the city’s most recognizable sights thanks to its distinctive dome, and the one most often represented in paintings made for sale to visitors. This work, which was among the earliest purchased by The Met, in 1871, was produced with a pendant, or companion view, representing the Grand Canal above the Rialto Bridge.
