Glory of Venice: Masterworks of the Renaissance

Oct 2, 2016 - Feb 12, 2017

The Denver Art Museum (DAM) is delighted to present Glory of Venice: Masterworks of the Renaissance, Denver's first-ever exhibition to illustrate the development of Venice's own distinct Renaissance style from the second half of the 1400s to the early 1500s. The exhibition explores the city's artistic evolution, as it shifted from a center of local significance, to the internationally recognized model of pictorial excellence admired by generations to follow. The exhibition will feature about 45 significant works, including important loans from Venice's Gallerie dell'Accademia, which houses one of the greatest collections of Venetian Renaissance art in the world. A rare opportunity for visitors to experience these masterworks outside of Venice, the exhibition also features four Titians, three Giorgiones and six Giovanni Bellinis.
