THE POETRY OF LIGHT. Venetian drawings from the National Gallery of Art, Washington
From December 6th 2014 to March 15th 2015
Museo Correr, Venice
One of the most important collections of Venetian drawings in the world belongs to the National Gallery of Art, Washington. This extraordinary collection, comprising over 130 works produced between the 16th and 18th century, when Venice and its mainland possessions represented a major centre for the finest Italian artists, returns to its original home in a major exhibition at the Museo Correr, curated by Andrew Robison.
The exhibition opens with the drawings of the most important artists of the late 15th century, Andrea Mantegna, Giovanni Bellini and Vittore Carpaccio, and continues with works by Giorgione, Domenico Campagnola, Lorenzo Lotto and Titian.
