"VIEW OF SAN MARCO ACROSS THE LAGOON, VENICE" BY NICHOLAS BRIGANTI (AMERICAN, 1861-1944)
In oil on canvas, signed lower right "N. Briganti"
Item # 405XYT18A 

A large and fine luminist scene that captures a view of San Marco from across the lagoon in Venice while two local figures collect clams in the shallow waters, it is a delightful glimpse of a timeless location in the past. The golden hues of the morning sun cast a shimmering glow across the ripple of the water as fishermen prepare their nets in the simple fishing boats anchored just off shore. The work is signed in the lower right corner in his typical script "N. Briganti".
