THERE’S TIME UNTIL 4 JUNE TO VISIT THE “JHERONIMUS BOSCH E VENEZIA” EXHIBITION

The “Jheronimus Bosch e Venezia” exhibition held in the Doge’s Apartment in the Doge’s Palace, St Mark’s Square will stay open until 4 June. This prestigious exhibition is co-produced by the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia and the Museo Nazionale Gallerie dell’Accademia di Venezia, with the support of the Dipartimento di Culture e Civiltà of Verona University. As printed in the exhibition presentation “thanks to the spectacular masterpieces by Bosch and almost fifty contextual works from important international, public and private collections - paintings by, among others, Palma Giovane, Quentin Massys, Jan Van Scorel and Joseph Heintz, extraordinary engravings and drawings by Dürer, Bruegel, Cranach and Campagnola, bronzes and ancient marbles, precious and rare manuscripts and printed books - visitors will discover a city that alongside the classicism of Titian and tonal lyricism pursued a learned passion for the subject of the dream and oneiric visions”. The drawing rooms and extraordinary collections that in Venice became places and occasions for discussions and exchanges of opinion of a philosophical and moral nature will thus be recalled. Bosch e Venezia is a stirring and evocative exhibition that lets us rediscover an intentionally enigmatic art and an absolutely ambiguous figurative culture that does not cease to intrigue, arouse discussion and astonish.
