Marriage at Cana (detail)1561
Oil on canvas
Santa Maria della Salute, Venice
Tintoretto painted this picture for the refectory of the monastery of the Crociferi, from where it was transferred some time after 1657 to the church of Santa Maria della Salute. The painting with its bold perspective transpose the scene to 16th-century Venice and shows interesting details of everyday life, customs, and fashion.
