- Nocturne: Salute
Across an expanse of the Bay of Venice rise the domes of the Salute, appearing at the left of the Dogana. At the right, in the distance there is shipping and below is a solitary gondola. At the left, slightly indicated, are buildings and their reflections. The butterfly, shaded, is below the middle of the plate, near the left edge.
