Description

A daguerreotype of the Palazzo Foscari on the Grand Canal, Venice, by Alexander John Ellis. The full title of the daguerreotype is 'Venice, Palazzo Foscari with a portion of Palazzo Guistinian from the Portico of Palazzo Mosolino.' Ellis toured Italy in 1841, taking daguerreotype panoramas, landscapes and architectural views. In Rome, he worked with Achille Morelli and Lorenzo Suscipi, acquiring 45 daguerreotypes from them. In total, Ellis took or acquired 159 daguerreotypes. He intended to publish engravings made from these as a book entitled 'Italy Daguerreotyped', but sadly the project was never realised.
