Summary "Ciao, Carpaccio! Veteran travel writer Jan Morris hails the Venetian Renaissance painter Vittore Carpaccio in this charming homage to his work. In the course of writing her classic book on Venice, Morris became utterly enchanted with the historical presence of this sometimes-overlooked artist. Now she indulges her infatuation with this handsomely designed and imminently entertaining exploration that ranges from biography to art interpretation to Morris's genre of expertise, personal odyssey. Includes 70 photographs featuring Carpaccio's intriguing work" -- summary from Longitudebooks web site.
