Death in Venice : Plague. Quarrantine. And Jacopo Robusti Tintoretto.

St Roch Curing the Plague (1549) by Jacopo Robusti Tintoretto

‘‘I never was so utterly crushed to the earth before any human intellect as I was today before Tintoretto. Just be so good as to take my list of painters, and put him in the school of Art at the top, top, top of everything, with a great big black line to stop him off from everybody…. As for painting, I think I didn’t know what it meant till today.’’
