Summary NoteThe publication-date is given on the title page of Volume I as 1834, but on that of Volume II as 1830.

The plates and texts show and describe one hundred paintings of the Galleria Dell'Accademia, Venice. This had originally contained paintings by Academicians but by 1817, when it opened to the public, the collection had been enlarged with the addition of paintings seized from churches during the Napoleonic occupation and other works expropriated by Napoleon. Throughout the 19th century it was further enlarged by bequests and donations. The collection consists almost entirely of paintings by artists of the Veneto. This selection consists of outline engravings of works by Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese and others, most of them on Christian themes. In-text illustrations consist of head- and tail-pieces, portraits of artists and, in Volume I, a title-page vignette.

In Volume II the plates and descriptive texts are followed by Zanotto's 'Storia Della Pittura Veneziana', which has its own pagination and divisional title-page.
