The overall treatment points to the likely origin being British/English school during the mid-late 19th century, the subject of Venice suggests a tutored/schooled hand and many English and American artists lived and worked in Venice, see: Frederic, Lord Leighton, P.R.A. (1830-1896), The Interior of St Mark's Basilica, oil on canvas; or An Interior in Venice by John Singer Sargent, 1898 (the finest of all painters to depict Venice in the 19th century). The composition and under-painting reveals a talented hand and in keeping with later 19th century practice, the treatment with the impressionistic application and use of light and tone is well rendered and the overall composition sophisticated even in this unfinished state. In an salesroom environment a speculative follower of Sargent would be advisable. Images of Venice always popular and can achieve substantial interest.
