Wodick is one of the favorite artists of Dusseldorf. In this painting, his figure delineation is captially done. Two Venetian ladies in a balcony above are listening to the serenade of some cavaliers below, whose forms we just discern through the shadows. Venetian palaces fill up the distance. The attitude of the beauteous ladies, the coloring, the surroundings, are very finely given. [P. 59; no winner was listed in the distribution listing for this entry.]
