aptain , you do ask some convoluted questions.

As an old warhorse, here is my offering :

i. The location is Venice . I think the question can be a bit misleading. Several famous paintings on venice. Could be Canaletto with his paintings of canals in Venice, or could even be Monet although both these had more than 2 famous paintings about Venice…. See More

ii.The lady is Heloise, and the chap is Abelard. Heliose became a nun in a convent near Paris called Argenteuil after their marriage became public.

iii. This is of course Edouard Manet . He has done several paintings of Paris and Argentui including ” The Seiene at Argentuil”” and Monet has a similar named painting but I am not sure if that is the connection you were looking for .
