Carlevarijs was an innovative painter whose pioneering publication of 104 etched views of Venice in 1703 was later used as a source by Canaletto and other view-painters. This informal view, perhaps of the 1720s, is one of a group depicting everyday life around the Piazza San Marco. A study for the figure of the man reading is in the V&A, London.
