Tintoretto: the Artist of Venice at 500
The only great Venetian painter of the sixteenth century to have been born in the city, Tintoretto is inextricably linked with Venice. Five centuries after his birth, his distinctive paintings still cover many walls of its churches, confraternities, and museums.
Join Frederick Ilchman, co-curator of this year's anniversary exhibitions at Palazzo Ducale in Venice and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, for an exploration of Tintoretto's artistic achievement and an insider's view of the organization of the exhibitions.
Frederick Ilchman is the Chair of the Art of Europe
department at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and a specialist in the painting
of Renaissance Venice. He was part of the curatorial team for the Museo del
Prado's Tintoretto exhibition in 2007 and lead curator for "Titian,
Tintoretto, Veronese: Rivals in Renaissance Venice" at the Museum of Fine
Arts, Boston and the Musée du Louvre in 2009. He also serves as Chairman of
Save Venice Inc., the American counterpart to Venice in Peril.
