Physical Description:
48 x 38 cm

paper negative, coated with a further layer of wax
Notes:
This is an example of the transition from Gothic to early Renaissance architecture in Venice. The striking feature of this photograph is the empty space above the portal: the statues of a lion and of the Doge Francesco Foscari, destroyed when Napoleon's troops marched into Venice in 1797, were not replaced by copies until 1885.
