A large painting of Venice hangs in Eton College, gifted to them in 1636 by Henry Wotton, the former British Ambassador to the city. The eight-metre canvas offers a birds-eye view of the buildings and canals and includes tiny vignettes depicting everyday Venetian life. This volume examines the painting in detail in the context of the historic depictions of Venice and also discusses the life of Wotton himself.
