The view is approached from the opposite direction from that of P509, placing the Doge’s Palace on the right and looks across the Piazzetta, past the columns and the library, towards the mouth of the Grand Canal with the church of Santa Maria della Salute and the Dogana on the opposite bank, and the Giudecca with the church of the Redentore just visible on the left. Both views were very popular with Canaletto’s patrons: they were engraved in 1742 by Visentini, and at least five other sets are known.
