The Palace Gardens, Venice

WAG 1443


Mackie first became enchanted by Venice in 1908 when he spent the whole summer there painting and making prints. He was there again in August 1911. This colour woodcut was one of a group of 35 colour prints by different artists on show in the 1911 Liverpool Autumn Exhibition. The Curator Dibdin did much to encourage the display and purchase of prints by the Walker.
