The Praya Grande (or Great Bay) was painted by Chinnery many times in both oils and watercolours. When he arrived in Macao in 1825, it was flanked by a shallow crescent of fine houses, some of which possessed verandas and columns. For some years the East India Company was based in two of the grandest buildings there, but today none of the structures depicted by the artist survives.
