At the Met in NYC there is a nice exhibit of paintings and drawings of the Venetian school.
Here is a Madonna and Child Enthroned by Lorenzo Veneziano (+1372), obviously a Venetian painter.
There are touches of the byzantine in this portrayal.
Here we find a naturalistically rendered Christological goldfinch, by now an old friend of regular readers here. I do like to share the Christological goldfinches.
The Met was jammed to lunacy with people today. I find those crowds oppressive.
