By Hungarian Artist Bela Szikiay, and dating to the 1930's, this fine etching measures 16" x 11", with a sight size of 11 3/4" x 8 1/4".
It is affixed to a folded mat with backing, and is in good condition, with some minor foxing on the mat and one spot on the print, visible in the sky in the upper right area. It is signed in the print, as well being pencil signed in the margin, with artist's signature and title. Bela was known for his Venetian scenes, and this is a fine example, with bright and crisp hand coloring. The scene depicts the Doges Palace from the Grand Canal, with gondolas in the foreground, one of the Lions of Venice, with the Place and Cathedral of St. Mark in the background. With good color and sharp etching, this is a very fine print by Szikiay, giving a lovely view of this magical city.
