Paintings and Drawings Vittorio Carpaccio
From 10 October 2020 to 24 January 2021 Venice at Palazzo Ducale Appartamento del Doge will hold the exhibition of the works of Vittore Carpaccio.
He finally returned to Venice, where his works had not been exhibited since 1963, thanks to a revived interest in historiography and also to recent discoveries and restorations.
The exhibition is built in co-production with The National Gallery in Washington and will trace, in both thematic and chronological terms, the development of carp painting from an updated perspective, through religious cycles and genre paintings and a substantial core of drawings, revealing his fervent imagination, the rigor of his technique and his interest in nature, perspective and the effects of light.
With important loans from European and US museum collections and private collections, in the Venetian chapter the exhibition will reconstruct the artist’s path from youth to artistic maturity, recomposing now dispersed narrative cycles and referring to city itineraries for those present in the lagoon; in his entourage of Washington, the first American exhibition for carpaccio, will be proposed exceptionally works commissioned by the confraternities, preserved in Venice and presented after recent restorations revealing.
Famous especially for its cycles of narrative and religious paintings, Vittore Carpaccio (1460/66– 1525/26) represents the greatness and splendour of Venice transporting the sacred stories in everyday life, in scenes rich in detail, uniting the observation of the urban scene to the poetic and the fantastic.
