Regatta auf dem Canale della Giudecca by Francesco GuardiAlte Pinakothek, Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen

Guardi captures the spectacle of colour and light on Venice’s Canale della Giudecca in this unusually wide panorama.

Only the narrow ribbon of buildings in the light of the evening sun…

… separates the blue of the sky from the shimmering surface of the water…

… over which the boats glide during a regatta.
