PARR, R after MARIESCHI, Michael. A Front View of the Church of Madonna della Salute belonging to the Regulars of the Congregation of Somascha with the Monastry situate on the Grand Canal of Venice.
Original framed etching with hand colour, by Parr after the Italian artist Michael Marieschi, published by Robert Wilkinson in London, c.1790. 400 x 500 mm.
This delightful view of the church across the Grand Canal is unusual in that it has been embellished with what is called "tinsel decoration", small, jewel like pieces of cut glass that add sparkle to the print.
