Figure descriptions
Illustration is set in Venice, Italy. Two veiled women stand together and look out at the Venice Canals from behind a stone railing. There are boats on the water and buildings line the far shore, including the basilica of Santa Maria della Salute. Steps lead up to an area on a platform beside the women. Large columns are placed at the top of the steps. Artwork fills most of the wall behind the pillars, and a vase sits on a plinth in front of it. Clouds fill the sky. Full-page illustration.
