Dear all,
I invite you to join the special exhibition and lecture (in English) about „Titian and the Renaissance in Venice” at the Städel Museum in Frankfurt.

What is this about?

“The Städel Museum is presenting a choice panorama of Renaissance painting in Venice. The artists of the “City of Water” developed an independent strain of the Renaissance relying on the impact of light and colour. The major survey features more than twenty works by Titian alone – the most extensive selection of his works ever before on display in Germany. The Frankfurt show assembles more than twenty examples by Titian alone – and thus the most extensive selection of his works ever before on display in Germany. It will also present paintings and drawings by Giovanni Bellini (ca. Protected content , Jacopo Palma il Vecchio Protected content , Sebastiano del Piombo (ca. Protected content , Lorenzo Lotto (ca. Protected content , Jacopo Tintoretto (ca. Protected content , Jacopo Bassano (ca. Protected content , Paolo Veronese Protected content and others. These works will offer comprehensive insights into the artistic and thematic breadth of the Renaissance in Venice and elucidate why artists of later centuries looked back to the art of this time and place again and again for orientation.”
