However, their images almost always include recognizable landmarks. In his rendering, Sargent avoids identifiable Venetian monuments in recording the characteristics of a typical neighborhood. The inclusion of sailing vessels invokes the city's historical importance as an Adriatic port. Museum: Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA.
