Not on display
The main view and the studies above it are inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation. In the lower half is a prospect near the north-western entrance to the Grand Canal, looking north-east with the elaborate Baroque porches of the churches of the Scalzi (Santa Maria di Nazareth) and San Simeone Piccolo on the left and right respectively, as labelled by Turner. San Simeone’s smaller south-eastern dome is continued on folio 84 verso opposite (D14477). The Santa Lucia railway terminal now lies left of the viewpoint. The campanile of San Geremia rises beyond the Scalzi.
For other drawings made in the vicinity and an overview of Turner’s coverage of Venice, see the sketchbook’s Introduction, and for more studies of boats see under folio 37 recto (D14383).
