The Harbour tapestry shows a scene of Venice by Francesco Guardi from the mid 18th century. Guardi (1712-1793), a painter from the Venetian school, produced works in pittura di tocco, meaning of touch, with the techniques of dotting and brush-strokes. Venice has been a cultural and economic centre of Europe for centuries and its waterways is its unique feature. Here we see merchants stepping on the harbour doing trade as ships with their beautiful tall masts are in the water. Arches with foliage decorates the glorious harbour. The Harbour tapestry is backed with lining and tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rods and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.
