Boston Public LibraryJames McNeill Whistler (1834-1903). Lithographs, Etchings, and Drawings / American Artists
- Little Venice
In the distance, beyond a broad lagoon, Venice with its domes and campaniles lies outstretched under a slightly clouded sky. A large ship lies close to the city, and gondolas pass here and there upon the lagoon. Several posts rise out of the water, in which buildings, boats, and posts are reflected. The butterfly, shaded, is on the water, toward the left lower corner of the plate.
