Where to buy...Andrea Robbins and Max Becher

The Sonnabend Gallery is showing the artists' photographs of Venice, or rather of the stunning replica of the city at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.

Artists have been peddling souvenir images of Venice for ages, and at first glance Andrea Robbins and Max Becher look to be simply 21st-century Canalettos (See Exhibit of the week). Their luminous photographs familiarly showcase placid canals, weathered gondolas, variegated façades bathed in flattering pre-dusk light. Normally, capturing the perfect confluence of conditions requires serious patience and endless pavement pounding, but Robbins and Becher have eliminated much of the grunt work by taking all of their snapshots at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas—a stunning replica of Venice where the water’s always azure, the gondolas are well scrubbed, and dusk never ends. At Sonnabend Gallery, 536 W. 22nd St., New York, (212) 627-1018. Through March 31. Prices range from $7,500 to $9,000.
