Description

Between 1835 and 1865 Holland undertook numerous visits to Venice. The architecture and landscape of the city provided the artist with endless inspiration and the works he produced as a result of these trips, were largely responsible for cementing his reputation. Calle della Regina is in the Santa Croce district of Venice. It is named after Caterina Cornaro, who became Queen of Cyprus in 1472 but following the Turkish invasion of 1489, returned to Venice and resided in the Castello di Asolo.
