Tintoretto in Venice: a Guide
(1000 items available)
Unlike the other two master Renaissance painters associated with Venice, Titian and Veronese, Tintoretto alone was born there and left his mark there more than either artist. Over one hundred and twenty of Tintoretto's breathtaking paintings spill out of the pages of this publication, divided into sections that correspond to the Venetian Sestieri. Each painting is accompanied by entries written by an international team of art historians placing them in their artistic and cultural context. His paintings can still be found everywhere in the city: not only in museums, but as part of the original decorative cycles in public buildings such as the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, the Doge's Palace and the Biblioteca Marciana, and serving as altarpieces or chapel decorations in Venetian churches.
