National Gallery of Art Tour “Tintoretto: Painter of Renaissance Venice” by Rocky Ruggiero, Ph.D.
Join Rocky for an extraordinary lecture tour of the exhibit on Tintoretto at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., which was organized in honor of the 500th anniversary of the artist’s birth. Tintoretto exploded onto the stage of the Venetian Renaissance around the middle of the 16th century with an expressive, dramatic and forceful style that broke from the more traditional style of his teacher Titian. This exhibit is the first retrospective of the artist in North America and displays nearly 50 paintings and a dozen drawings by this Renaissance master, many of which are in the US for first time.
What guests can expect:
- To thoroughly understand the works of Tintoretto in Renaissance Venice
- To enjoy a “hands on” approach to the works of art
- To develop an ability to interact in a personal and intimate manner with the works of art discussed
