About the Object
The waterfront promenade of the Riva degli Schiavoni, or River of the Slavs, has long been one of the most picturesque and popular in Venice. Paintings by the great Canaletto and his British followers like William James show the bustling of gondolas, sailing boats and barges; the promenade itself is equally lively with travelers, merchants and townspeople actively engaged in both commerce and recreation.
