Tintoretto: Artist of Renaissance Venice | June 27, 2019 | 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM | National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of Jacopo Robusti (known as “Tintoretto”), one of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance. The National Gallery of Art, in cooperation with the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia and Gallerie dell’Accademia, has assembled some of the Venetian master’s greatest paintings for the first retrospective of the artist’s works in North America. Featuring nearly 50 paintings, many of which have never left Venice where Tintoretto lived and worked for 75 years, the exhibition presents works spanning the artist’s entire career, from expansive religious and mythological scenes to august portraits of Venetian aristocracy that inspired later artists such as Rubens and Rembrandt.
