American by birth, Charles Caryl Coleman settled permanently in Italy in 1866, establishing his studio on the Via Margutta in Rome. He often traveled to Venice during the summer where he studied the works of the old masters.The unusual perspective of this composition offers a view of the bronze horses on the porch of the Basilica of San Marco. The upper section of the Clocktower looms in the background over the Piazza San Marco.
