Dr. Eric Denker, ’75, head of adult programs at the National Gallery of Art, will offer a lecture on Tintoretto: Artist of Renaissance Venice. An opportunity to view the show will follow. In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the birth of Jacopo Tintoretto (c. 1518–94), the National Gallery of Art and the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, with the special cooperation of the Gallerie dell’Accademia, will organize a major exhibition on the Venetian master. Following its opening at the Palazzo Ducale, Venice, in September 2018, Tintoretto: Artist of Renaissance Venice will travel to the National Gallery—its only other venue—where it will be on view from March 24 through July 7, 2019. As the first retrospective of the artist in North America, the exhibition will include many significant international loans traveling to the U.S. for the first time. The exhibition will feature nearly 50 paintings and more than a dozen works on paper spanning the artist’s entire career, ranging from regal portraits of Venetian aristocracy to religious and mythological narrative scenes. Please register by Thursday, March 28.
