Catalogue Details

Arthur Streeton first visited Venice on his honeymoon in April 1908. The famous city delighted him and he devoted the remainder of the year to painting it. 'What a wonderful place it is, we stayed in a charming place in the Zattere ? and I worked hard and did some good pieces.' Letter to Frederick Delmer, 1st July, 1980, quoted from Eagle, M., The Oil Paintings of Arthur Streeton in the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, 1994, p.147
