Grand canal, Venice - Frank Armington
The Armington couple made a trip to Italy in 1912. Venice, its Canal, its monuments and its curiosities particularly marked Frank Armington. Lined with these palace facades with their "pali" to hang gondolas, the Grand Canal opens a wide path to lead our eyes towards the domes of Santa Maria della Salute. This view is very characteristic and remains forever engraved in the memory of Venice fans.
The plate was engraved in 1913 and entered the Chalcography collection on February 25, 1931
Frank Armington is of Canadian origin, but he practiced his art as an engraver and painter mainly in Paris from 1900 onwards. With his wife Caroline, herself an engraver, they trained at the Julian Academy and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. Their artistic career was closely linked and essentially based in France, although they made many trips (Netherlands, Germany, England, Italy, Algeria). The Armingtons took a look at the landscapes, cities and monuments as a tourist attraction. Their interpretation is poetic, simple and harmonious to the taste of travellers of all times. Frank has a particular interest in the lines outlined in the study of figures and portraits.
700 etchings, drypoints, lithographs and paintings were added to the collections of many European and American museums, as their art was very popular.
