This unique watercolor portrays Punta della Dogana in Venice, a very special place that divides the two main canals of Venice : Canal Grande and Canal of Giudecca. The point was used for docking and customs as early as the beginning of the 15th century.The temporary structures built to store merchandise and customs workers were replaced by the Punta della Dogana, whose construction began in 1677.
