Representing one of the greatest storehouses of paintings in the world, Paintings in Venice offers an amazing range of art, both in style and period - from the old masterworks found at the Gallerie dell' Accademia, the Doge's Palace, Ca' Rezzonico, and the Correr Museum to the great modern artworks in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. This book traces a path through Venice - from the grand halls of the Gallerie dell' Accademia to numerous churches, private collections, and schools. The book features many great European masters, such as Tintoretto, Veronese, Carpaccio, Lotto, Ercole de' Roberti, Memling, and Bosch, alongside artworks found in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection by such great modern artists as Picasso, Leger, Kandinsky, Mondrian, Klee, Magritte, and Bacon.
With essays by four renowned art historians and biographies of every artist in an appendix, this book is as historically important as it is visually stunning. Through eight centuries of painting, the reader is invited to contemplate the history, customs, and art of Venice, one of the most influential cultural centers in the world. Paintings in Venice is lavishly illustrated and will be an invaluable resource for scholars and art lovers alike.
