My Favorite Artworks at Ca' Rezzonico, Venice  
by
11/19/15 Posted 12/13/15

Venice has almost as many museums as its numerous Palazzi; one of these stately buildings stands along the Grand Canal is Ca' Rezzonico, whose art collections are fully in line with the peculiar tastes of the 18th century Venetians, decorative, precious, and a bit silly, but redeemed somewhat by whimsical playfulness and perhaps self-mockery. The favorite piece I saw there was a fresco titled "Mondo Novo" by Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo, featuring vivid and even theatrical figures populating the streets in... [more]

My Favorite Artifacts in Il Ghetto and Museo Ebraico (Jewish Museum) in Venice  
by
10/3/15 Posted 11/18/15

Il Ghetto and Museo Ebraico (The Ghetto and Jewish Museum) in Venice were poignant places to visit and unsurprisingly, one of my favorite artifacts there was a series of reliefs mounted on the wall of the huge courtyard, depicting momentous experiences of the Jewish people: Another favorite of mine was an ancient map/landscape of a walled city (Jerusalem?) housed inside the museum. I was struck by the harmoniously interwoven pleasing blue and green tones throughout the lovely piece, and t... [more]

My Favoritate Paintings in Scuola Grande di San Rocco, Venice  
by
9/19/15 Posted 10/4/15

A grand building in Venice, Scuola Grande di San Rocco, houses a huge cycle of paintings by Tintoretto, commissioned in 1564. For next twenty-seven years, he and his assistants, including his son Domenico, created this opus magnum. From this cycle, I cite these two below as my favorites. The first one is "The Annunciation" which depicted this familiar subject in a startlingly dramatic way and the dynamic momentum and the stark tonal contrast were overwhelming. The Annunciation from the Tintoretto cycle, Image courtesy of Wikicommons b... [more]

My Favorite Artwork at Piazza di San Marco  
by
5/22/15 Posted 6/18/15

Piazza di San Marco in Venice is a marvelous museum itself, featuring valuable historical artifacts and artistic treasures, too numerous to list. One of my two favorites is the iconic sculpture of "I Tetrarchi (The Tetrarchs)" at the foot of Basilica di San Marco, depicting four ebony colored Tetrarchs huddling together, either in fear, or treacherous congregation. Very intriguing and engaging: The second favorite sculpture of mine is actually a capital, which has some very peculiar looking heads sticking out of the column, some with the spirit... [more]

My Favorite Artworks in Palazzo Ducale, Venezia (Doge Palace, Venice)  
by
1/24/15 Posted 5/22/15

The vast compound of Palazzo Ducale, Venezia (Doge Palace, Venice) is a trove of architectural and art treasures scattered around within and without the highly decorated walls of the palace, therefore it took me some concentration to choose my two favorites. My first choice was a painting by Titian, depicting the giant Saint Christopher carrying baby Jesus on his back, across a river before the child revealed himself as Christ. The composition was powerfully dynamic, with the Saint startlingly sinewy and serious, a personification of relia... [more]

Two Museums in Venice - Gallerie dell'Accademia & Collezione Peggy Guggenheim  
by
7/16/13 Posted 7/23/13

Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice In 2000, when I visited Rome and Florence, I made a seemingly silly day trip from Florence to Venice, specifically to visit Gallerie dell'Accademia in order to see two of my favorite paintings there - the intimate and enigmatic Tempest by Giorgione and Paolo Veronese's immense and celebratory The Feast in the House of Levi, along with others. The trip to Venice was quite rushed but the visit to the museum and admiring those paintings below were truly gratifying. T... [more]

The End of the Line, The Last Days in Venice   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Posted 6/2/13

I have been to Venice many times in my life, and I think my favorite moment is the approach. As the train pulls into Venezia Santa Lucia station I have the feeling that I have arrived. I feel as though I have arrived at the end of a pilgrimage, across the world, to another land, another era. It may have something to do with the fairytale beauty of this ancient archipelago, or it may stem from the sensation of a connection to the crusaders of the Middle Ages, a connection that is encouraged as I am plu...

Gregg Chadwick La Notte 14"x11" oil on linen 2012 La Notte, my latest painting, was begun shortly after I returned from my latest excursion to Venice, Italy. Venice, poised between sea and land, is a place where light, shade, color, and reflection merge and recombine in the city's watery environment. In this mirrored world, past and present seem to coexist. History’s shadows slide in and out of darkened alleys and slip along narrow canals.   The color and light found in the artworks of the...
