Ask Jen Mann where she likes to spend the majority of her time and the answer comes easily: “my studio.” Other answers, however, are not so quickly accessed.

I first met David Dalla Venezia outside the museum that hosted an exhibition of the late pictures of Tiziano Vecellio, who is known simply as “Titian” in America.
