The Accademia Galleries
Light and Colour in Five Centuries of Venetian Painting Over the centuries the great masters of Venetian painting adorned the city with wonderful works imbued with light and colour, a quality that has distinguished the Venetian school of painting since its origins. The collection at the Accademia Gallery illustrates the evolution and characteristics of Venetian art: the fourteenth century Byzantine-style Madonnas and the great canvasses by Gentile Bellini and Carpaccio that record fifteenth century Venice. The surprising humanity of Giovanni Bellini’s sacred representations and the revolutionary genius of Giorgione and Titian; the fervour of Jacopo Tintoretto, the luminosity and opulence of Veronese and the variety of creativity from eighteenth century painting. This encounter with Venetian masters will help you to understand and appreciate styles of art that are as unique as the city that inspired them.
