Shop on Barnes & Noble


I love Venice. Therefore, I love Tintoretto. Therefore, I love the Scuola Grande di San Rocco. I have been visiting all three for many years and was planning to do so again this year, 2020. However, those plans did not work out this year. So I thought that I would do a virtual tour of the Scuola to which Tintoretto dedicated a lifetime's work. The purpose was to record my personal responses to the paintings and to organize these responses into some sort of coherent order. The result printed in this booklet is offered as one person's informal guide to encourage readers to visit this amazing collection of a lifetime's work in one accessible location: the work of one of the world's greatest artists in one of the world's most beautiful and amazing cities, Venice. As a further incentive, the collection culminates in what many regard as the world's greatest-ever work of art: Tintoretto's Crucifixion. The book's glory is the beautiful high resolution color images donated by the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, Venice.
