British and American Artists in Venice 1815-1914

Venice has played an important part in the development of British painting.  Turner made the first of several visits in 1819, all of which influenced his painting;  Ruskin loved Venice and his The Stones of Venice is an influential best seller;  Whistler only spent 1879-80 in Venice but did some of his finest work there.  John Singer Sargent had a particular love for the city which he visited and painted regularly.  Finally, we shall look at Walter Sickert's unique vision of Venice.
