Chandeliers of Venice

In Art and history, Designs by Roger Thomas

The Museo Correr in Venice occupies a Renaissance creation by  Sansovino, which frames the east side of Piazza San Marco.

It is famed for several different collections, including the most important group of sculptures and bas-reliefs in Venice, by the Neoclassical master Canova.

The rooms have seen centuries of decoration, and in a city famed for chandeliers offer an interesting catalog of the ingenious varieties of the form.
