Venetian Palaces and Canal.

Marin (1870-1953) arrived in Venice in April 1907 for a six week stay with his family. During this time he made some 20 etchings and a handful of drawings of Venetian palaces and canals. While departing from the style of Whistler's famous Venetian etchings and pastels from the late 1870s and 1880s, Marin's work nevertheless owes something to Whistler--both the vantage points he adopted and the shimmering quality of his Venetian prints and drawings. In this drawing Marin also imitates Whistler's passion for applying heavy pastel colors on tan paper.
