The classic silhouette of San Giorgio Maggiore, which lies on its own island just across the lagoon and opposite the Doge's Palace, is one with which every visitor to Venice will be familiar. The simple but sublime lines of the building, designed by the famous architect Andrea Palladio in the mid-16th century, have created a backdrop which dominates the view of the lagoon from the city. Peter Curling believes that the early morning light looking "contra-jour" creates the most fascinating effects of all. It's brightness on the water reduces the images to simple tones and, with the church in silhouette, it dominates the landscape even more.

Each print is hand signed by the artist and hand numbered.
