Glory of Venice: Free Day at the Denver Art Museum

  • 12h ago · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

On View through February 12, 2017

Hamilton Building - Level 1

Experience the extraordinary creativity of Venice from the mid-1400s to early 1500s, when artists forged a Renaissance style that was distinctly Venetian. Through this artistic evolution, the city became an internationally recognized model of pictorial excellence. Artworks in the exhibition emphasize how masters during this period—whose sensitivity toward color and light remained unparalleled for centuries—veered from traditional techniques and began using oil paint to experiment with depth, emotion, and dimension in their work.

Glory of Venice features about 50 significant works, and provides visitors with a rare opportunity to experience 19 artworks from Venice’s Gallerie dell’Accademia, which houses one of the greatest collections of Venetian Renaissance art in the world. Additional masterworks on view include paintings on loan from the Scuola Grande di San Rocco in Venice, and the Fondazione Magnani Rocca in Parma, Italy, as well as signature paintings in the DAM’s collection.

A fully illustrated exhibition catalog, published by the DAM, will accompany the exhibition.

Glory of Venice is co-curated by Angelica Daneo, curator of painting and sculpture at the DAM, and Dr. Giovanna Damiani, former Superintendent of the Museums of the City of Venice and current Director of the State Museums of Sardinia. After the exhibition closes at the DAM, it will travel to the North Carolina Museum of Art.

    Great to meet some new people. I should have done a little research on the artists and a head of time. Thankfully there were a couple others who knew a lot and who made it a lot more interesting. Lunch after very nice. Sorry we lost a few people but hope to see them at other events! Cheers, Melissa

    Two things: parking will be a challenge today due to Parade restrictions; which entrance are we meeting in front of? The new building or the old building?

    There are so many events and people that we need to make an effort to meet at the scheduled time, 10:00 am. I can wait at entrance by door with sign, but after 15 min. I'm going thru the exhibit.
