After Harry Fenn, Three Engravings Depicting Venetian Scenes

After Harry Fenn, Three Engravings Depicting Venetian Scenes

This fine set of engravings after American illustrator Harry Fenn (1837-1911) depict various scenes from Venice. They were originally contained within Part 25 of the publication ‘Picturesque Europe’, published by Cassel and Company in 1884.

They depict:

Entrance to the Doge's Palace, Venice, by Edward Whymper (1840-1911) after Harry Fenn.
Off the Rialto, Venice, by Josiah Wood Whymper (1813-1903) after Harry Fenn.
River Front of the Ducal Palace, Venice, after Harry Fenn.

Picturesque Europe was a popular publication that met the growing curiosity of the middle classes for ‘foreign lands’. It was an extensive set of books and a fascinating read. Various artists and engravers were called upon including father and son, Josiah Wood Whymper and Edward Whymper.

All three engravings are framed and glazed.
