The Ponte dell'Accademia is one of only four bridges to span the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. It crosses near the southern end of the canal, and is named for the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, which from 1807 to 2004 was housed in the Scuola della Carità together with the Gallerie dell'Accademia, which is still there. The bridge links the sestieri of Dorsoduro and San Marco.
Christopher Stone (1933-) is a self-taught English painter. He served in the Royal Air Force as a fighter pilot, and completed 32 years of service in 1983 in the rank of 1 star general. During his retirement in Virginia, USA he has diligently studied painting. He initially concentrated his efforts towards aviation art, in which field his works have been exhibited by the Guild of Aviation Artists in London, and the American Society of Aviation Artists in the United States. In recent years his painting interests have expanded to embrace portraiture, figurative and landscape subjects, and many of these works are in private collections around the globe. Maintaining a strictly representational style, in his preferred medium of oil, and with a keen attention to light and atmospheric effects, he has been greatly influenced by British artists including: Sir Alfred Munnings, Sir William Orpen, Edward Seago; and the great Spanish impressionist Joaquin Sorolla.
