The Riva, One of the 'Twelve Etchings,' or the 'First Venice Set'
James McNeill Whistler
A view of a city along the edge of water sweeps from the foreground towards the right in the distance. Along quays, bridges and promenades can be seen groupoings of people walking and in conversation. Boats populate the water's edge: smaller boats in the foreground, larger multi-masted ships in the distance.
