Venetian Gothic architecture is a term given to the Venetian building style that combined the Gothic lancet arch with Byzantine and Ottoman influences. A combination of inventiveness, hard work and talent is necessary to wind up with an architectural design that will leave an imprint within onlookers. To some of us when we first read it, now many years ago, it seemed to point out a new road on which the world should travel.

    In the 14th century, following two fires that destroyed the previous structure, the palace was rebuilt in its present, recognizably Gothic form. The third volume, The Fall, looks at the Venetian spiritual and architectural decline during the Renaissance. For the lesson which Ruskin here teaches us is that art is the expression of man's pleasure in labour; that it is possible for man to rejoice in his work, for, strange as it may seem to us to-day, there have been times when he did rejoice in it; and lastly, that unless man's work once again becomes a pleasure to him, the token of which change will be that beauty is once again a natural and necessary accompaniment of productive labour, all but the worthless must toil in pain, and therefore live in pain. It also is decorated with 14th century sculptures by Flippo Calendario and various other artists. SparkNet, 16 Aug.
