Odds and ends from yesterday and today

On the left, some things noticed at I Frari today; on the right, an engraved medallion of a riveside city from a large silver platter in the exhibition on the Romans and Barbarians at Palazzo Grassi.

Left, more sketches from the Frari; right, an unfinished view of Santa Maria Formosa that I drew from the balcony of the Hotel Ruzzini during the brief intermission of La Serva Padrona (Pergolesi). It was a private opera, an afternoon entertainment held in their salotto for no more than about 20 people.
