Early Modern European Architectural Designs and Drawings

This small sketch presents a view along a waterway that passes beneath a double-arched bridge. The triangular sail of a small boat is visible just before the bridge, moored to the quai next to some sheds. A tall church with a central steeple rises on the right bank in the foreground, and two other tall buildings punctuate the middle ground and distance. The chimneys and rooflines of humbler dwellings appear on the left bank. Despite the urban setting, only a few figures may be glimpsed, including a man crossing the bridge on horseback.

The circular room’s ceiling is painted with a sky motif populated by cupids; the room also features ornamental mouldings above four windows that depict musical instruments, and busts on pedastals are placed between the windows. A large number of well-dressed men and women sit while a group of musicians in the center of the room perform on a piano, flutes, cellos, a harp, and other stringed instruments. The print is framed by an ornamental border, and a stretch of tasseled fabric below the scene contains a title and a coat of arms.<br /><br /><u>Marks/Inscriptions:</u><br />
