Partnership with the Museum of Biscainhos, in Braga, where a protocol was signed for the transfer of the painting attributed to William James (1730-1780), from the second half of the 18th century.
William James, an English painter, takes up from a composition by Canaletto. He starts with Venetian themes, working from drawings and paintings, never having traveled to Venice. The painting represents one of the most important feasts of Venice, Festa della Sensa, the symbolic celebration of Venice's union with the sea on the Ascension Day.
