Venice in Peril


The card measures 7×5 inches and has the message “Seasons Greetings.” One pack of cards contains 10 cards with envelopes.

The cover of the Christmas cards features a detail taken from the top panel of the St. Sebastian Triptych by Giovanni Bellini and his workshop. This masterpiece was created in 1464-70 for the Church of Santa Maria della Carità, now part of the Gallerie dell’Accademia, and is one of our conservation projects this year. The conservation treatment will include cleaning the old varnishes, removing the disfiguring historical retouching, carrying out remedial work to ensure the panel’s stability, and non-invasive research into the materials and techniques used.

We need your support to fund this conservation treatment and no donation is too small. Proceeds from the Christmas Card sales will directly fund our conservation work
