The union of poetry and painting in the work of the great Venetian painters is the theme linking the eighteen essays by Philipp P. Fehl (1920-2000), brought together in this book. The author's careful study of individual works of art by Titian, Veronese, and the Tiepolos, among others, disposes once and for all of the notion that Venetian art is aesthetically sublime but intellectually shallow.
