Until a few days ago, in what now seems like a distant memory, the streets, gardens, and palazzi of Venice were filled with art, for the 2017 Art Biennale, entitled VivaArteViva.

This hugely life-like but hugely larger than life sculpture by Carol Feuermann was in the Giardino della Marinaressa until December 5. I visited it and its sisters back in June and this photo brings back happy memories of summer and the Biennale.

The next art Biennale will be in 2019 (Biennale means ‘every two years’) but next year, from the 26 May, Venice will host the Architecture Biennale. Something to look forward to .
