Well-known for his views of Venice, this picture was painted during the artist's decade of visits to England and it is tempting to think it was painted in 1749 when Sir Samuel Pennant as Lord Mayor headed the annual waterborne cavalcade from the City to Westminster Hall, although it is known he chose Samuel Scott to record the event with just such a view of Westminster Bridge. The painting was not bought until 1858 from C.
