I have been to Santa Maria della Salute3 this morning to see another Titian4 and a beautiful Tintoretto5. Please do not give away the Bacchus and Ariadne6 to anyone. I want us1 to have that for ourselves. I have bought some other pictures but not that, and I love that best of all. You are in the Atlantic7 now!
