Titian and the Golden Age of Venetian Painting @ the MIA ( Private Tour)

PLEASE NOTE THE TOUR TIME. THIS IS A PREPAY EVENT, SEE DETAILS BELOW. WE NEED 20 PAID PEOPLE TO GET THE GROUP RATE. MIA members are free, but We still need 20 paid.

If ever there was a reason to get up early on a Saturday morning, this is it. This is a rare opportunity to see these beautiful works of art that probably won't be back this way for many years to come.

Catch this rare opportunity to see the cream of the Venetian paintings collection of the National Galleries of Scotland, here for the first time ever. Two ravishing pendants by Titian, Diana and Actaeon and Diana and Callisto, make this a must-see for painting lovers.

Acclaimed as the most poetic creations of the Italian Renaissance, these luminous sixteenth-century paintings are the two most significant works by Titian outside of Italy and Spain. Originally painted for King Philip II of Spain, they entered the Bridgewater/Sutherland collection at the end of the 18th century and have been on loan to the National Gallery since 1945.

The exhibition also includes Titian's famous Venus Rising From the Sea (formerly a Bridgewater picture) and masterpieces by Lorenzo Lotto, Jacopo Tintoretto, Jacopo Bassano, Paris Bordon, Giovanni Cariani, and Paolo Veronese. A companion exhibition, "Venice on Paper," will present a selection of stunning Venetian drawings by Venetian Renaissance masters.

 

This will be a very popular exhibit, I strongly suggest giving yourself plenty of time to find parking either in the ramp, lot, or on the street.
We will gather under the big yellow Dale Chihuly glass sculpture in the lobby
 
.

Members of the MIA may use their membership for FREE admission to this exhibit.
Otherwise you may use the Pay Pal Option or a check can be sent to me @ 2834 Sumter Ave. S, St. Louis Park, 55426. I have to have payment in to them by Feb. 5th. Please do not wait until the last minute.

Check out the posting for the Free Third Thursday prior to this exhibition, we will be able to tour the companion exhibit titled Venice on Paper. It explores the city through graphic arts, bring together five centuries of original prints, drawings, books and photographs, all made in or about Venice.

Following our tour we will meet for lunch at Christo's. Good food, great company, good conversation and always a good time. http://www.christos.com/christos.html

It is my fault, but I have the CPA coming up next weekend and I wish I could take the time. Thanks! If you know anyone that wants to go in my stead, please let me know.
