Yesterday, I visited the Palazzo Grimani in Castello.
I was drawn to the fireplaces in several of the many rooms in this Palazzo. However, the quality of the lighting, and my poor judgment in selection of cameras led to very poor images. Sigh.
But, all was not lost. The last one I came across made me very happy I wasn’t one of the Grimani children. What must they have made of the figure above the opening of the fireplace? And, what were the seniors of the Grimani family thinking when they commissioned this?
Good night, little children. Sweet dreams.
Now, isn’t that a nice change from veiled ladies and chubby knees?
