TINTORETTO 1519-1594
From 7 September 2018 to 6 January 2019

Venezia, Palazzo Ducale – Doge’s Apartments

The Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia and the National Gallery of Art in Washington present from 7 September 2018 to 6 January 2019 an international research project to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the birth of the Venetian painter Jacopo Tintoretto, one of the giants of sixteenth-century European painting.

The itinerary in the Doge’s Apartment – curated by Robert Echols and Frederick Ilchman, under the consultative direction of Gabriella Belli – contains fifty autograph paintings and twenty drawings by Tintoretto, lent by the great international museums, together with the famous cycles painted for the Doge’s palace between 1564 and 1592, visible in their original position.

The exhibition offers illuminating examples thanks to loans from important museums all over the world and from some prestigious private collections: National Gallery, Royal Collection, Victoria and Albert Museum, Prado, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Staatliche Museen, Philadelphia Museum of Art and Musée du Louvre.
