Gaskell's finest Venetian work, San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice captures the tranquil beauty of this magical city to perfection. There is a delicate painterly touch to this particular aquatint which is testament to the artist's outstanding skill as a printmaker. Indeed, Percival Gaskell’s works of this nature possess a peaceful, timeless elegance which sets them apart from other landscape prints of their generation.

On cream wove paper with full margins and deckle edges. One or two isolated foxing spots towards extreme edges of sheet in outer margins only, otherwise very good original condition.
