"Moonlight Over Venice" by Jane Vivian

$9,980

About

Oil on canvas, signed lower left. Measures: 18" x 32" canvas and 22" x 36" including the frame. Jane Vivian was the daughter of James Vivian de Fleury (fl.1847-1868), a painter of landscapes and coastal scenes. She lived in London and was probably taught by her father who influenced her style and topographical subject matter. She travelled widely most likely with her father across Europe but seems to have spent a lot of time in Italy especially Venice where she produced many views of the famous city. After living in London she moved with her father to an address in Islington Row in Birmingham, circa 1880. She exhibited works at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and also at the Birmingham Society between 1892-1893. Although she also painted riverscapes and lake views of other European cities such as Bruges and Rouen, it is for her Venetian scenes that she is perhaps best known. A number of her works can be found at the Croydon Art Collection, Shipley Art Gallery, Newstead Abbey, Haworth Art Gallery, North Down Borough Council and Oldham Gallery.
