A street scene near St. Mark's in Venice. A tall column stands squarely in the center of this scene, dividing it into two halves. On the left are two domes of St. Mark's, dinghies with sails at various settings in the middleground and people walking, sitting or lying on the plaza and steps around the column. On the right there is a second column in the middle distance--people similarly arranged around it--and behind this column, a grandly embellished arcaded building. Pigeons flutter and peck center-front. (Monica Jensen 02/09/93)
