The painting delightfully presents the view of Marciana Library with the Columns of San Marco and San Teodoro in front and a beautiful perspective of the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Mark in the distance. The artist used very delicate pastel colours and has succeeded in adding some mystery to the scenery.

Jane Vivian de Fleury ( Active 1869-1890 )
Jane Vivian was a landscape painter who lived in London. She is known particularly for her views of Venice and exhibited a number of works at the Society of British Artists, including views of Venice, Bruges, and Rouen. She also exhibited at several provincial galleries including the Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham, The Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, Manchester City Gallery, and the Royal Hibernian Academy.

She came from a dynasty of topographical artists who worked and lived in England.

J de Fleury was active and successful from 1799 to 1823. He was a landscape painter who mainly worked in Wales but lived in London and was a regular exhibitor in the major London exhibitions between 1799 & 1823.

His son J. Vivian de Fleury painted mainly abroad and specialized in views of Switzerland and Italy. He exhibited between 1847 & 1868 and had many addresses in London during this time.

Miss J. Vivian first exhibits a view of Venice from a London address in 1869 and continues to exhibit mainly Italian views until 1877. Around 1880 she seems to have moved, as did her father, as their next exhibiting address is Islington Row, Birmingham where she continued to exhibit work until 1888. The name J.V. de Fleury reappears at the Birmingham Society exhibitions in 1892 & 1893. Her work shows an attention to detail that is a reflection of her father's technique but there is a lightness of touch and softness in the palate, which is considered even finer.

The monumental complex between the Doge’s Palace and the Marciana Library features two marble and granite pillars overlooking the lagoon and surmounted by statues of the city’s two patrons: the winged lion, symbol of St. Mark the Evangelist and St. Tòdaro, the Byzantine St. Theodore of Amasea, the city’s first protector. These are the Columns of San Marco and San Todaro.
