We go back in time, to bring you urban art from the 1800s
The artist in question is Andrew Fisher Bunner, he came from the United States and lived between 1841and1897.  His works were gifted by Mrs. Fisher Bunner, in 1899, to the The Met Museum, that now holds his work.  All of the drawings in this post, are centred in and around Venice, the famous Italian tourist spot, renown for its canal systems, that criss-cross, the  beautiful seaside the city.  In a way, it's as if each drawing was a small portal back in time, because what we are seeing in each illustration below, is the view the artist had of Venice in the 1880s and we are there with him to appreciate it.
