Quote: Venice bathed in light

“As I glided over the lagoons in the brilliant sunshine and saw the gondoliers in their colorful costume, gracefully posed against the blue sky, as they rowed with easy strokes across the light-green surface of the water, I felt I was looking at the latest and best painting of the Venetian school. The sunshine raised the local colours to a dazzling glare and even the parts in shadow were so bright that they could have served pretty well as sources of light.” (Goethe, “Italian Journey” – Pantheon Books, 1962).
