Works from these collections, which have long won world fame, will be shown for the first time together in a single space, which will allow viewers to get a more complete picture of the variety of Rococo Venetian paintings. In the exhibition you can see the works of such important Italian artists as Giovanni Battista (Jambattista) Tiepolo, Giovanni Battista (Jambattista) Pittoni, Luca Carlevaris, Giovanni Battista (Jambattista) Piazzetta, Giovanni Antonio Canaletto, Francesco Guardi, Pietro Longhi.
The Venetian school of painting, in the Renaissance, gave the world of Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese, in the XVIII century is experiencing a new period of brilliant prosperity. Venice is becoming an important center of the artistic life of Europe, which is especially noticeable in the example of painting, marked by vivid colorful, decorative and diverse genres.
Giovanni Battista Tiepolo (1696-1770) - the largest Italian painter of the XVIII century, who largely continued the traditions of Paolo Veronese, the last representative of the Baroque in European art, is considered to be the true spokesman of the spirit of Venice. His canvases and monumental paintings are distinguished by emotional excitement, dynamism of compositions and bright colorfulness.
In the 18th century, Venice developed a special type of urban landscape called the Vedut. It originates in the works of Luke Karlevaris (1663-1730), little known to our viewers, whose compositions can be seen at the exhibition. This genre experienced its true heyday in the work of Antonio Canaletto (1697–1768), which captured the unique look and atmosphere of Venice, its everyday life and holidays. Unlike Canaletto, Francesco Guardi (1712–1793) saw his city differently. Not striving for accuracy of the image, he created poetic pictorial fantasies, arbitrarily combining real motives and fiction. This type of landscape is called "capriccio."
The life of the 18th-century Venetians was depicted in his works by the master of genre painting Pietro Longy (1702–1785): sketches from life — secret dates, games, funny street scenes, portrayals of everyday events — became the main themes of the artist’s works.
The masters who glorified the Venetian school did not always live and work in the capital: artists often realized their talent in small towns. Of particular note is Vicenza - the “city of Palladio”, named after the famous Italian architect Andrea Palladio. He was born in Padua, but left a significant part of the architectural heritage in Vicenza. One of Palladio’s masterpieces is the Palazzo Chiericati, which today houses the Vicenza City Museum, which has submitted its work to an exhibition at the Pushkin Museum. A.S. Pushkin. Viewers will also be able to see works from the Palazzo Leoni Montanari (Italian Galleries) in Vicenza, which introduce 18th-century Venetian paintings from the Intesa Sanpaolo collection.
At the exhibition in the Pushkin Museum. A.S. Pushkin’s works of Italian artists from different collections complement each other: the famous Canaletto’s painting “Buchintoro Returns to the Mall at the Doge’s Palace” and two other works of this master, belonging to the Pushkin Museum, will decorate the exhibition in Vicenza, where the works of this outstanding painter are absent (in Venice itself you can find only a few works). In Vicenza, there are no paintings by Bernardo Bellotto, the nephew of Canaletto, who are rich in the collection of the Moscow Museum. At the same time, the works of Giambattista Piazzetta, one of whose best works, Ecstasy of St. Francis, will be exhibited in Russia, are not presented. The work of Pietro Longy, an artist who devoted himself to genre painting, is not very familiar to the Russian audience. His small funny paintings, full of subtle humor, open before the viewer the life of a Venetian aristocratic society. The works of Giambattista Tiepolo, one of the greatest masters of European painting of the 18th century, which the museums of Moscow and Vicenza are rightly proud of, will also be shown. Thus, at the exhibition, his work will appear in a wide thematic range and in a variety of genres, from a plafond composition on the allegorical theme “Time Discovering the Truth” (Palazzo Chiericati, Vicenza) to altar images and small easel paintings for private customers painted for churches, among whose mastery of execution stands out "The Death of Dido" (the Pushkin Museum im. A. Pushkin). The exposition is completed chronologically by a group of capriccio landscapes Francesco Guardi, who left the descendants with a unique poetry image of Venice - an amazing city on the lagoon.
Marina Loshak , Director of the Pushkin Museum. A.S. Pushkin:
"The Pushkin Museum to them. A.S. For many years, Pushkin has been working closely with museums in Italy, thanks to which he has the opportunity to organize exhibitions of Italian art of the highest level. Inspired by the high level of Italian school paintings stored in the Pushkin Museum, the director of the Vicenza Museum of Art, Professor Giovanni Villa, offered to hold a joint exhibition combining works from Russian and Italian collections. The exhibition will be an important step in the development of partnerships between Italian and Russian museums and will take place in two stages: first it will be shown in Moscow, and then in Vicenza. ”
