  Otto Henry Bacher   (1856-1909)

 
  FONDAMENTA DELLE ZATTERE, 1880. Andrew, Venice set 17. (Alternate title: View in Venice.) Signed, titled, and dated in the plate. This view is looking east across the little bridge where the Rio di San Trovaso enters the Giudecca Canal, with the facade of the Church of the Gesuati beyond. Bacher always preferred to depict the ordinary places, such as this scene of commercial shipping, rather than the grand views favored by earlier generations. The Via Accademia leads to the fondamenta, which affords beautiful sunet views. This is an especially good impression, with a firm plate mark and great clarity of line. In fine condition.
