Ponte del Piovan
- Ponte del Piovan
Spanning a narrow canal is a bridge of masonry supported by timber-work, beyond which, on either side, rise tall buildings. In the background is a large house with a balcony projecting above a low roof. Through the arch of the bridge is seen an arcade opening on the canal. On the wall of a low building at the right is the sign, "Ponte del Piovan detto del Volto." Figures appear on the bridge and behind a parapet on the canal, near the entrance to the arcade. There are reflections in the canal. The butterfly, shaded, is on the bridge masonry, at the right.
