I submitted my initial paper proposal to Professor Och, but am not prepared to post it here just quite yet. There is some editing that inevitably needs to be done and further research that needs to take place before I will feel prepared to publicly share it!
I just acquired two print sources from the National Gallery of Art that I thankfully now can add to my collection of bibliography. I have thumbed through a few pages of text and pictures, noting which ones stood out to me.
I think I want to shift the focus of my thesis – and therefore perhaps the title of my essay and research – to something that involves Canaletto’s fantasy of Venice and how he translated that into a reality.
Just a few scattered thoughts to get my blog going – more to come when I fully figure out the logistics of the site!
