The Poetry of Venetian Painting

Hamburger Kunsthalle

NOW CLOSED

Paris Bordone, Palma il Vecchio, Lorenzo Lotto, Titian

Poetry, sensuality, colour and light – 16th-century Venice was a vibrant centre thriving with artistic innovation. Newly available pigments enabled the influential painters around Titian to explore a wide variety of topics in an unknown poetic and sensuous style. Paris Bordone, one of Titian’s as yet overlooked students and rivals, counts among the great artists of Venetian painting of the first half of the 16th century. Discover Bordone’s multi-faceted work in the context of his contemporaries. With around 100 paintings and prints by Paris Bordone, Palma il Vecchio, Lorenzo Lotto and Titian, this exhibition offers an enchanting insight into the splendor of Venetian painting. Find out more about the ‘Poetry of Venetian Painting’ exhibition from the Hamburger Kunsthalle’s website.
