Lovely, luminous group of Venetian views lovingly shot and printed by the Russian-born photographer Kessel (1902 - 1995), whose work for LIFE magazine won international acclaim. As he wrote in his book, ON ASSIGNMENT: DMITRI KESSEL LIFE PHOTOGRAPHER (New York, Abrams, 1985): "In sun, rain, fog, snow, photographing Venice was, for me, a labor of love "

The photos include several views of St. Mark's Square (including the Basilica, a snowy view of the Doge's palace), the Campanile, vaporettos parked in a canal, gondolas floating in the lagoon, one of the famous bronze horses undergoing restoration, and others.
