Bacher, Otto. FONDAMENTA DELLE ZATTERE (VIEW IN VENICE). Etching, 1880. #17 of the "Venice Set." Signed, titled, and dated in the plate. 6 3/4 X 9 1/3/16 inches, 171 x 249 mm. (image) 8 3/4 X 11 15/16 inches, 222 x 330 mm. (sheet). In excellent condition. Framed to 13 x 16 inches. 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 sunset views. This is an especially good impression, with a firm plate mark and great clarity of line. In fine condition.
