Piazza San Marco, Venice. Watercolour Art For Sale Adrian Tuchel

Work made in an early morning of June 2012 from the front of the Piazzetta looking through the two columns to the Palazzo Ducale. This (west) side is occupied entirely by the Biblioteca (Library) designed by Jacopo Sansovino to hold the Biblioteca Marciana (library of St Mark). Building started in 1537 and it was extended after the death of Sansovino, by Vincenzo Scamozzi in 1588-91. The building was said by Palladio to be 'the most magnificent and ornate structure built since ancient times'. Campanile of St Mark's Basilica (1156/73 last restored in 1514), was rebuilt in 1912 ' com'era, dov'era ' (as it was, where it was) after the collapse of the former Campanile on 14 July 1902. Adjacent to the Campanile, facing towards the church, is the elegant small building known as the Loggetta, built by Sansovino in 1537- 46. To the left is the long arcade along the north side of the Piazza, the buildings on this side are known as the Procuratie Vecchie - the old Procuracies, formerly the homes and offices of the Procurators of St. Mark, high officers of state in the days of the republic of Venice. They were built in the early 16th century. The arcade is lined with shops and restaurants at ground level, with offices above. The restaurants include the famous Caffe Quadri. Beyond that is the Clock Tower (Torre dell'Orologio), completed in 1499, above a high archway where the street known as the Merceria (a main thoroughfare of the city) leads through shopping streets to the Rialto, the commercial and financial centre.
