Edition of approximately 40. A superb impression of this scarce and important print. This view is similar to Whistler's The Riva No 1 and The Riva No 2 (Kennedy 192 and 206), form the opposite direction. While Whistler's view is probably taken from the Casa Jankovitz, where he lived with Duveneck's students at the time, Duveneck's is likely seen from his balcony at the Casa Kirsch. Although it is much debated, it is said that Whistler's Riva etchings were inspired by Duveneck. Catalogue Raisonne: Poole 13. Framed under glass, H 22.5", W 18".
