Exposition : « Vittore Carpaccio. Master Storyteller of Renaissance Venice », Washington, National Gallery of Art, 20 novembre 2022-12 février 2023

A leading figure in the art of Renaissance Venice, Vittore Carpaccio (c. 1460/1466–1525/1526) is best known for his large, spectacular narrative paintings that brought sacred history to life. Although for centuries he has been loved and celebrated in his native city for his observant eye, fertile imagination, and storytelling prowess, this exhibition marks the first retrospective of the artist ever held outside Italy. In a focused selection of some 45 paintings and 30 drawings, large-scale canvases painted for charitable societies will be seen alongside smaller works that originally decorated the homes of prosperous Venetians. Some of the paintings, notably two celebrated canvases from the Scuola degli Schiavoni in Venice, and the Gallery’s own The Virgin Reading (c. 1505), have been newly conserved for the occasion. The drawings, characterized by a marvelous freshness of invention, include sketches for complete compositions as well as meticulously observed studies for individual figures. A fully illustrated catalog with essays by the curators and other leading scholars will explore the full range of Carpaccio’s creativity.
