Into The Mists Of Time

 The Church of Santa Maria della Salute, Venice is by Francesco Guardi, circa 1780-85.


Here we have a view of the next large space.


I slipped into a side corridor first. Here we have the fountain courtyard from above.


There are works by Peter Paul Rubens here. Stormy Landscape is circa 1635-36.


The Entombment is circa 1612-14.


Here we have a view down the corridor winding around one side of the upper courtyard.


Finishing off today, this is Portrait of a Nobleman by Francisco Beyeu, circa 1785-90.
