Monet decided to visit Venice in 1908 after going through a period of creative frustration. He went at the urging of Mary Young Hunter, an American friend of his second wife, Alice. Monet originally intended just a short stay in Venice, he even said after arriving that the city was to beautiful to be painted and was virtually unrenderable. Nonetheless, he soon became enamored with the city and stayed three months. He began work on a group of paintings that expanded his traditional view of seriality, the practice of painting the same motif at different times of the day. This work on the Grand Canal is one of six views that he painted of Santa Maria della Salute, this version was done from across the canal on the steps of the Palazzo Barbaro where he and his wife had lodgings during their stay in Venice.
