For hundreds of years, Venice has been captured by artists throughout art history. During the 18th century, Venice's grand canals and carnivals were a favourite amongst artists, including Venetian Francesco Albotto.

Venetian pastel painter Rosalba Carriera (1675-1757) has captured the biblical figure of Judith with the head of Holofernes. The Book of Judith was the subject of many Renaissance and Baroque period works of art. Artists either portrayed the decapitated Holofernes on his bed, or Judith, along with her maid, carrying the head.

The 19th century saw a real surge in artists defining new styles and art movements. This work by  Pietro Luchini is an example of realism, whilst French painter Eugène Boudin's beach scene is an example of the energetic paintwork of the impressionists. Boudin was a pioneer of Impressionism, his work inspired such impressionist heavyweights as Claude Monet.

Austria-Hungary born Erma Bossi, was under appreciated for her artists talents as, sadly, many of her paintings were lost for a number of years after WWII. Once her works were resurfaced, they conveyed just how how much the artist had contributed to the modern art movement during her Munich period, circa 1904-10.
