The Carnival at Venice. (A. D. 1720)

Figure descriptions
A man holds a woman’s hand and helps her onto a gondola. The gondola is covered with a dark canopy. The poem text specifies that the woman is attending the Carnival at Venice, Italy. She wears an orate gown, a long veil, and a dark mask which covers the top half of her face. The man wears simple robes; he looks up at the woman. Other figures ride in gondolas in the background. A man wearing a jester’s hat (or a fool’s cap) also stands in the background. Multiple tall buildings line the water’s edge. Several figures lean out of the balcony on the closest building; they look down at the water and observe the figures below. 3/4-page illustration contained within a single-ruled border.
