Stella, not exactly inspiring or clever, but I can see the attraction on interior decorator grounds
But Magritte is a different matter. Lovely work this - the odd angle being because so many people were in front gazing at it.

Back across the bridge, the Palazzo Barbaro was hosting an exhibition of modern glass art as part of the Biennale (more on which in a later entry). This was right up my street as I love glass and got the chance to poke around the palace too. The exhibition is called Glasstress and its coming to the Wallace Collection in London, so might give it another go.
Obviously this is a clever piece as the "sculpture" looks like a blog but the image is contained in the shadow it casts.
In am almost adjacent courtyard was another exhibition of works by an oriental artist scattered over both courtyards and the palace. And all totally free. Enjoyed this, especially the simple polished shapes in the courtyards, possibly enhanced by the pouring rain.
And so wend my way back to the hotel in twilight, knowing the forecast was a for a sunny weekend.
