"Bridge of the Rialto, Venice. 18 x 12. It was constructed in 1588-91, is 158 feet long, 46 feet wide, with a single marble arch of 74 feet span, and 32 feet in height, resting on 12,000 piles. Until 1854 this was the only bridge over the grand canal, and connecting east and west quarters of the city. There are now two iron bridges. The Rialto was formerly the 'place of the exchange,' and four hundred years ago was the grand focus of the entire commerce of Europe." (see serial 04120256 for commentary on artist)
