Objects that survive the ravages of time provide valuable insight into the past and help us better understand a world and culture long since changed. Two works by the Venetian artist, Vittore Carpaccio, provide especially enlightening examples of this. They are Hunting on the Lagoon, c. 1495 from the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and Two Venetian Ladies, c. 1495 from the Correr Museum in Venice [Figure 1 & Figure 2]. Like pieces of a puzzle, these paintings join to form a compelling look at fifteenth-century Venetian life.

When pieced together, these remnants allow us to rediscover aspects of a bygone culture. They convey information specific to a time and place. As representatives of Renaissance Venetian material culture, they reflect aspects of social, cultural, and economic relevance.
