Paul Vernon
(French, active 1874–83)
Venetian Canal, 1883
Oil on panel, 10 1/2 × 14 inches
Signed and dated at lower left: “Paul Vernon ’83”

Paul Vernon was born in Paris, where he exhibited at the Salon from 1874 to 1882. He painted landscapes, marines, and genre subjects. The domes that can be seen in the distance in this view of Venice are probably those of Santa Maria della Salute, which was designed by Baldassare Longhena and built largely between 1631 and 1683. It is one of the most prominent landmarks of the city and long a favorite subject for artists.
