Venice's Full Profile
The light is different in Venice, the sun glints off the city’s watery streets illuminating Renaissance palaces and churches filled with the art of Bellini, Giorgione, Tintoretto, Veronese and Titian. Perhaps due to the complex play of light reflected off the canals and Byzantine mosaics, Venetian art is known for its brilliant color and subtle tone. The great Venetian artists produced many of the most important paintings of the Renaissance, but their work was different from their colleagues in Florence and Rome who found inspiration in ancient ruins. The Venetians favored the sumptuous, the exotic and the poetic and created art for a society that had grown wealthy trading with distant lands.
