This was the last of the Venetian subjects to be completed and, like Amor’s other Fondamente Nove print (cat. no. E.141), it was etched entirely in Melbourne, from a photograph (now lost).
E.149 depicts a view from the embankment looking over the water towards Mestre. Amor found the barges moored along the Venetian quays an appealing subject, a distant echo of his youth by the waters of Port Phillip Bay.
The first state impression of this work was squared by the artist in his Alphington studio, in preparation for a work in another medium, but this was never made.
