Venice, the tide's in and so is the Biennale

We arrived in Venice after a four and half train trip from Torino. After meeting Mr Bernitto at the train station he took us on a five (ten) minute walk to the apartment over a canal bridge and next to another canal.

Some food shopping was needed to make lunches, have breakfast and pre dinner nibbles. Ham, cheese and wine are essential. Every morning on our way out to explore Venice we did coffee, sometimes with a conetto.

Our second day in Venice was to explore and orientate our position on the Grand Canal. Karen insisted an experience on a gondola.

Peggy Guggenheim was a priority for the day, and what an experience! If you studied art or made art in the late sixties and seventies you would have love it, as I did.

I don't think Marino Marini got it right!

The image of 'the emperor' was a real surprise. I never thought Kandinsky made abstracted images, only non representational ones during his classic period. At first I thought it was a Paul Klee.
