Here Gagliardini has captured the timeless beauty of one of the most beautiful cities in the world; Venice. Whilst other artists of his generation might focus on the more famous landmarks, here Gagliardini highlights the beauty of the edge of the city, showing that its beauty is all-encompassing. His use of a bold palette has encapsulated the feeling of the hot sun reflecting against the architecture and waterways, imbuing the canvas with a sense of warmth and adding harmony to the scene.

An artist of the French school, Gagliardini painted portraits, landscapes, seascapes, and marine scenes, working primarily in oils.  He studied under Soulary in St. Etienne, and also under Léon Coginet (1794-1880) in Paris, a famed academician who also favoured the Romantic style of painting.

Gagliardini combined the academic skills he learned in Paris with the atmospheric experimentation in colour that his contemporaries were dealing with. He received much recognition for his artistic oeuvre, and went on to exhibit at the Paris Salon from 1869 to 1880.
