Marco Grubacs was an 19th Century Austiran painter who is best known for his Venetian scenes. Grubac’s portrayals of Venice; such as in the pieces Venice, are a sensitive dedication to the nostalgic echo of romantic 18th c. paintings. The softeness and the precise detail in his work both highlight his skill as a draughtsman whilst concurenlty harking back to the great 18thc. Painters, such as Canaletto and Guardi.
