The painting capturs the vitality, colour and opulence of the Venice Carnival.
Samuel Melton Fisher, RA (British, 1859-1939) studied at the Lambeth School of Art and Royal Academy Schools between 1876 and 1881, winning a gold medal and a travelling scholarship; travelling to Paris, he studied with Jules Bonnaffé. His work In Realms of Fancy was purchased by Chantrey Bequest in 1898 and later in his life he returned to portrait and figure painting, possibly for financial reasons. More on Samuel Melton Fisher
