Located on the right bank, the repository is on the Quai des Schiavoni or Slavonians. Ziem's interest in this site came from the presence of the Ponte Sepolcro with its steps and canopy, which obstruct part of the view, while the opening to the Grand Canal opens up this area in a blaze of blues between sky and water.
