abstract
This is a Venetian scene, showing a noble lady and gentleman on the steps that lead down to the canal, on whose place water a gondola waits ready to convey the gentleman. The lady, who fondly clings to her companion's arm, has a blue ribbon round her curly hair, and wears a red coat trimmed with lace, and a deep golden yellow skirt. The noble squire is clothed in a satin doublet and trunk hose of purple and green, edged with golden braid and lace, and having red sleeves; white tights and shoes. On his head is a low-crowned hat with a large white feather, and a short cloak hangs from his shoulder, and a rapier at his side. Perched on his left hand is a parrot, and a greyhound stands before him looking up into his face. Behind them on a carved stone parapet is shown an ornamental vase with a creeper traling from it. The setting sun throws a radiant glow over the surface of the water, from behind the buildings on the other side of the canal. The print is unsigned.
