CARPACCIO – Doge’s Palace Exhibit
From March 18 to June 18 2023, the paintings and drawings of Vittore Carpaccio will be on display at the Doge’s Palace.
A contemporary of Giovanni Bellini, Titian, and Giorgione, Carpaccio is one of the great masters of the Venetian Renaissance. He interpreted and characterized the Venice of his time with inspired artistic ability and exceptional refinement.
The exhibition, organised in collaboration with the National Gallery of Washington, D.C., brings together not only a large number of Carpaccio’s paintings, but also those preliminary drawings that complete a delineation of the artist and reveal his technical rigour.
Religious themes alternate with the public, from altar-pieces to portraits, providing observers with a comprehensive awareness of the artist’s stylistic development. For the first time the two panels Two Venetian Ladies and Fishing and fowling on the lagoon are temporarily reunited to re-create what was (part of) a double door.
The exhibition continues beyond the museum to the Dalmatian School, the site of one of the artist’s great narrative cycles, The Stories of Saints George and Tryphon.
