A beautiful antique Old Master drawing with great patina, the subject a bridge over a Venice canal, with figures and fascinating detail, unsigned, in the style of Guardi. Francesco Guardi (1712-1793) is the most famous practitioner in the style, but Giacomo (1764-1835) accounts for his share of the production of such works, the so-called "Vedute" popular with tourists of the time. Major oil paintings by Francesco Guardi are among the most coveted of Italian 18th century Old Master works, selling into the millions. The style is immediately recognizable by even less sophisticated observers. Countless artists worked in the style, for decades, creating a cottage industry of sorts in this style of drawing. This unframed example in gouache and sepia ink is on laid paper and bears the patina of great age, including soiling in the sky and a small edge loss at lower left. It measures 6" by 9". Put an ornate mat and a gold frame around it and watch this sparkle.
