Woman According to Tiziano, on Display at the Palazzo Reale
#Exhibitions

Splendidly incarnated Venuses, aristocratic ladies and refined courtesans are ready to charm visitors to the grand exhibition that the Palazzo Reale is dedicating to Titian and the painting of the Venetian Renaissance in collaboration with the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna. During the 1500s in the Lagoon City, the female image acquired an importance it had, perhaps, never enjoyed before in the history of art, thanks to an exceptional concentration of absolute masters who were working in the territory of the Serenissima Republic, but also from the status afforded women in Venetian society itself. This is the point of departure of a journey that, following the through-line of beauty and seduction, explores the imagery of an epoch during which Venetian painting shined all over Europe. Besides the jewels offered by Tiziano Vecellio, authentic star of those years, there are also works by Tintoretto, Paolo Veronese and Palma il Vecchio, along with a delicate play of light, colour and sensuality. From mythological scenes to portraits - a genre that artists in the Lagoon City brought to heights which were, only a short while before, completely unimaginable - a gallery of masterpieces conducts the public into the heart of Venice in the 1500s and the discovery of customs, economic interests, the female condition and the most widely-accepted models of beauty. Among the works on loan, the Portrait of Isabella d’Este and Marte, Venere e Amore by Tiziano, both from the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna.
