Warren Sheppard traveled along the Mediterranean coast in 1879, sketching the ports of Naples, Gibraltar, Genoa and Messina. Sheppard’s foreign tours continued between 1888 and 1893, with stays in Paris and Venice, where he captured the architecture and busy canals of the Floating City. Venetian Canal and Garden is an excellent example of his work from this period, revealing his skill for rendering sunlight and shadow on the scene while still capturing the tiniest of details in the trees and balustrade.
