Santa Maria della Salute is as much an icon of Venice as anything on the other side of the Grand Canal in the Piazza, it’s position at the mouth of the waterway is advantageous, but the the building really makes the most of it with its large dome echoed by a smaller partner.  It’s a treat for any visual artist, so who am I to quibble with Turner and Canaletto in finding this picturesque?
