Venice was one of Georges Guinot’s favorite themes. Between 1984 and 1992 he would go there several times always in the winter. From his sketches he produced the large series of 60 canvases organised in 5 outlook of the city:
- The Old cafe of the St Marc square called Café Florian,
- the gondolas parked and chained to one another
- the Traghetti the large gondolas with 2 rowers who provide a service across the Grand canal
- Venice by night when the only light comes from the illuminated palaces,
- and the Funerals.
