Fejes of St Marks Square in Venice
This Fejes painting has hung in my parents house since I was 9 (which was in 1967). Sure the house has changed a few times but this painting has always been there.
I visited Venice this past spring and the spot was instantly familiar to me.
Oddly, Emerik might have gotten some of the colors right. I wish I had taken a photo at the same angle to compare with the painting. Of course, I would have had to photoshop out all the people.
