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.
Oh, I hope that´s not a guide in white standing way too close to a visitor, but a couple... I´m afraid I´m wrong...ReplyDelete
