Renaissance Venice

20 June-24 Sept. This exhibition of 16th-century Venetian painting features masterpieces by artists such as Titian, and Veronese, on loan from international collections and museums.

The show examines several themes key to the evolution of Venetian painting such as the importance of colour, the observation of real life through the depiction of power and beauty, mythological themes and religious compositions.

Highlights of the exhibition include Penitent Mary Magdalen by Tiziano Vecellio, Portrait of the Architect Vincenzo Scamozzi by Paolo Veronés (Paolo Caliari), and Perseus armed by Mercury and Minerve by Paris Bordone.

Tues-Sun 10.00-19.00.
