This is an original watercolor painting, signed ALBERTI in red in the lower right. I purchase this painting as being done by Giuseppe Vizzotto Alberti, and have researched this painting, and feel confident it is done by this artist.

The gondolas on the canal in the foreground with people wandering, shadows of birds, possible stars above the clouds, a captured moment of an early evening.
