Seago first visited Italy in 1955. Like many artists before and since, Seago was captivated by the colour, sunlight and shadows of Venice. He painted the famous sites of St. Mark's Square and the Grand Canal but also the narrow backwaters and the quieter canals. Chioggia, a fishing town in the lagoon south of Venice, featured regularly too. Seago also visited Grado, Rome and Ponza on his Italian excursions.
