The paintings delightfully present busy Venetian scenes of the Grand Canal, featuring boats and gondolas against a background of the Doges Palaces with a contrasting cloudy sky. Both are signed in red, J Salt .
The artist used very delicate pastel colours to add some mystery to the scenery with some vivid turquoise and slightly golden beige.
In excellent gallery condition having been cleaned and relined by a local conservator in 2001.
