This is an animated scene, where Wiggins applies the same vigorous brushstrokes and bold light-over-dark layering as with his views of Connecticut harbors. He was well-traveled from an early age, and this work shows his appreciation for the different maritime-scape found in Venice, with a large domed church proudly situated behind the ship masts. However, his love of the lapping water and the shadows made by the moored boats and pilons—elements shared with harbors around the world—is what comes across here. His lively Impressionist style was ideal for capturing the latent energy of a harbor scene.
