Venetian Watercolour ‘Campo Santa Margherita’ Venice

Venetian Watercolour ‘Campo Santa Margherita’ Venice by Stanley Orchart (1920-2005) A lovely watercolour by this accomplished artist. Campo Santa Margherita is one of the largest and most vibrant Campo’s in Venice, one of my favourite. A Lady called Karen wrote a blog, I hope she doesn’t mind me quoting her; In the heart of the Dorsoduro sestiere you will find Campo Santa Margherita, one of the largest campos in Venice. Campo, by the way, is the Italian word for field. The campos, for me, are like the heart of each little neighbourhood. Santa Margherita also has the most lively night life, with cafés staying open till around 2am most nights. Just about everything else in Venice is closed up by 11 pm. Right smack in the middle of the Campo Santa Margherita is this water fountain. There are water fountains throughout the city, in campo after campo, with the best fresh - and free- drinking water. Signed lower right, gallery labels verso. In a giltwood frame with double grey mount. A fine quality painting which I hope will become a good investment. Size: 14” by 18” (image only)
