Beyond the Grand Canal features fifty oil paintings and works on paper inspired by the charismatic and charming people Lesley Banks met whilst on numerous painting trips to Venice.
The beguiling Fiora Gandolfi was central to her discovery of a more intimate view of the City as she welcomed Banks into her world. We see glimpses of Gandolfi’s glorious home, a visit to her favourite espresso bars and a trip to the Rialto fish market at 6am. Peering through the bedroom window, we see a view of one of the many waterways and watch the mist forming across the lagoon. Through this intimate portrait, Venice comes alive and beckons you once more.
