55 80 $55.00 - $80.00
I painted this as I motored around Europe in the summer of 1962. I enjoyed painting on the spot directly from observation. This view was from the window where I was staying. The church of San Giuliano (San Zulian in Venetian dialect) is apparently the only church in Venice with the bell tower growing from the roof. The many others are stand alone structures. The painting was recently rediscovered by me having gone missing for a time. The reverse says it was painted July 1962 from the pension Berga in the early morning. I believe the church of San Giuliano was founded in the 9th century and rebuilt in the 12th and 16th centuries.
