The history of Venice is rich with the names of great painters, from Bellini to Titian and Tiepolo to Canaletto. However, Venice is more than the sum of the paintings, sculpture, prints, and drawings rendered by its master artists. The defining features of the city begin with the lagoon, and continue with the story of the Grand Canal and smaller rivulets, the bridges, the squares and courtyards, the churches and scuole—in short, the fabric of the fabled place. Eric Denker of the National Gallery of Art explores the elements of the urban environment that combine to make one of the most enchanting cities on earth.
