Canal and Bridge of S.S. Apostoli, Venice - MUIRHEAD BONE
Drypoint, 1916, Dodgson 351 (probably state xxvi of XXVI), edition 129. 12 7/8 x 8 7/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a superb, luminous impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. This tour de force of drypoint displays a refined composition, great detail and perspective, and the figurative and architectural elements are bathed in dramatic light. The Chiesa dei Santi Apostoli di Christo, commonly called San Apostoli, is a 7th century Roman Catholic Church and one of the oldest churches in Venice.
