Little is known about Austrian-born Antonietta Brandeis. She first studied art in Prague and then at the Academy in Venice. Her fondness for the intricate architecture of famous landmarks, charming canals and passageways, and the unique light and vitality of the city was her inspiration for her finely executed and intimate works of art. Her paintings on small wooden panels became souvenirs for visitors who flocked to the popular tourist destination in the mid-nineteenth century, not unlike modern day postcards. Brandeis also painted in Rome and Florence, but it her Venetian pictures that are most sought after today.
