Venetian Painting: from the Renaissance to the Rococo Period

February 14, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Follow the development of Venetian painting from the Renaissance through the Mannerist period, to the Baroque and the Rococo periods. Take a virtual tour of Venice, a veritable living museum where many of the works still reside in places such as the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore and the Ducal Palace.

Explore in-depth the art of master painters, including:
Bellini, the patriarch of Venetian painting
Titian, who dominates with colour and classicism
Giorgione, who apprenticed with Bellini
Tintoretto and Veronese, whose paintings exhibit angst and pride
Tiepolo, who brings the Rococo Period to a triumphant conclusion.
And many more.

If you’re interested in European painting, or dream of visiting Venice, this course is for you.
