Masters of Venetian Portraiture: Veronese, Tiepolo, Vittoria
OTTAWA, CANADA  •  National Gallery of Canada  •  8 June 2016 - 16 September 2018
 
Centred around Alessandro Vittoria’s terracotta bust of Giulio Contarini, this Masterpiece in Focus exhibition delves into Venetian portraiture of the 16th and 18th centuries. In addition to art from the National Gallery of Canada collection, the exhibition features works on loan from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and other renowned institutions. Through drawings, sculpture and various media, Masters of Venetian Portraiture explores the idea of paragone (comparison) between the different art forms practised by the most important artists of Venice.
