Ca' Pesaro, the Gallery of Modern Art
 
Modern Art at the Turn of the 19th C in a Grand Palace on the Grand Canal

Despite the turbulent times that marked the 19th century and the disastrous wars of the 20th C, Venice managed to preserve its artistic vocation. The Gallery of Modern Art at Ca’ Pesaro was created at the turn of the 19th C to house works from the Venice Biennale of Contemporary Art purchased by Prince Giovanelli. Over the years the collection has grown to encompass important Modernist works by artists such as Klimt, Klee and Chagall, as well as Italian artists of the 19th and 20th centuries including: De Chirico, Guidi, Morandi and the Venetian artist Emilio Vedova. The collection is hosted in a magnificent Baroque palace on the Grand Canal designed by the greatest Venetian architect of 17th C, Baldassare Longhena, who also designed the Church of Santa Maria della Salute and Ca’ Rezzonico Palace.
