Austrian painter Marco Grubacs is known for his evocative portrayals of Venice, continuing the great tradition established by 18th century artists such as Canaletto (1697-1768) and Guardi (1712-1793).

Marco Grubacs studied painting and drawing from an early age and his keen attention to draftsmanship insured his success as a painter of architectural views. Grubacs’ consummate draughtsmanship, a skill that he developed very early in life, lends an air of architectural accuracy to his paintings. He was able to represent the city in all its moods, from romantic moonlight to bright sunshine. His name sometimes appears as Marco Grubas.
