Relive the experience of coming face-to-face with some of the most well-loved masterworks at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This miniature postcard of The Bucintoro at the Molo on Ascension Day by Canaletto (Italian, 1697–1768) is complimented by a glazed finish that mimics a painterly texture. The elegant wooden frame allows your keepsake to be hung with ease.
Each framed item has been hand-framed by Furst Brothers, one of America's most prolific framers for over one hundred years. Working with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, they have paired every item with a unique setting in a complimentary color, texture, and wood.About this painting
The Bucintoro was the ceremonial boat of the Doge, the ruler of the Venetian republic. Once a year on Ascension Day, the Doge and other officials boarded this vessel to participate in a ritual celebrating the marriage of Venice and the sea. Here, the assembled group can be seen lining the dock.
The painting is dated by the jagged edge of the bell tower, which was struck by lightning in 1745.
