Thinking of Venice

It seems a long long time ago that we were in Venice enjoying the streets packed with tourists and the Aperols, ciccetti and pasta – not to mention the study in the wonderful libraries. My thoughts are with the people of Venice and hope to return as soon as possible.

I most miss the amazing colour of the water at the entrance to the Grand Canal. Instead of the normal Canaletto I have chosen this view by Bernardo Berletto (1722-1780) entitled View of the Grand Canal: Santa Maria della Salute and the Dogana from Campo Santa Maria Zobenigo, c1743, which is in the Getty Museum New York.

enjoy and keep safe
