Glory of Venice: Masterworks of the Renaissance highlights the development of Venice’s distinct Renaissance style from the second half of the 15th century to the early 16th century. The exhibition features approximately 50 works, including major altarpieces, private secular and devotional paintings, and portraits, many which have never been on view to the public outside of Venice. Twenty paintings from Venice’s Gallerie dell’Accademia, which houses the finest collection of Venetian Renaissance art in the world, form the core of the exhibition. They will be joined by masterpieces from other institutions in Italy and the United States, including the NCMA. Glory of Venice includes works by Giovanni Bellini, Carpaccio, Giorgione, Titian, and Jacopo de’ Barbari.
