This and That in Venice

Here are a few more photos from our fabulous week in Venice. We had such a great, relaxing time.

Huge, gorgeous painting by Titan of the assumption of Mary in the Frari Church. There was another one there by him too.

These were for sale in an interesting shop. They were used to show perspective buyers a dress in a miniature size. They were called “French Puppets”.

A very loud party was going on behind our apartment in a lighted courtyard. If you look closely you will see a guy on stilts outside the door. He was checking invitations-so I wasn’t able to sneak in and get a look.

An old painting showing Carnival in times past. You can see a really elaborate boat for royalty and people dressed in costume. I love seeing things like this showing life as it once was.

Just an iconic look at another canal and bridge in a part of Venice not visited much.

One thought to “This and That in Venice”

  1. I love Venice! And your photos are wonderful – they do her justice.

    Like you, I also love to study art to learn of other times and places. Bruegel is particularly good for that. I could stare at his village scenes for ages and learn so much about life and times in his era.
