Description

Under the spell of Venice, Bratby brings a rococo flourish to his normally rough-edged style with this elegant ink drawing.  With his second wife Patti he was a regular visitor to “La Serenissima” during the 1980s.

This drawing is illustrated in Art Quarterly, November 1988, vol 1, page 30.
