poster for Titian and the Renaissance in Venice

This event has ended.

In the 15th and 16th centuries, Venice, the City of Water, prospered dramatically through maritime trade and rose to power as a major world trade center with ties to other cultures. At this time, it entered a golden age of art. Paintings of diverse subjects were produced for spaces public and private, from churches and government buildings to the palaces of aristocrats, and a distinctive Venetian style of painting characterized by brilliant colors, free and vibrant brushwork, and the effects of softly diffused light was born. This exhibition will examine the characteristics and compelling allure of Venetian Renaissance art through paintings by Titian, the great master of the Venetian school, and other artists who built the golden age.
