(Venice, 1943, #1325 of 5000 copies printed). Guardi was one of a famous 18th century family of Venetian artists whose work is not very well documented, since his older brother and his son both had a free hand. However, the old master pen and brown wash drawings here are lovely, impressionistic, and clearly Venetian. It is a curiosity that a 252-page book featuring his work should have been printed during wartime; although the drawings are a pleasure, the paper is not. Innumerable drawings here, including some intricate foldouts. Fine boards, in near-Fine dust jacket with light soil, small closed tear to tail, tiny ding in spine fold, faint foxing to page edges.
