The webinar explores the art of the greatest painters in Venice in the 16th century – Tiziano, Veronese, and Tintoretto – with a special focus on the stimulating context of rivalry that the city was able to offer them. The artistic point achieved by this triad of artists would make this century deserve the title of “Golden Age”.

Art Historian Sara Grinzato will discuss some of the most relevant masterpieces created by Titian, Veronese, and Tintoretto in Venice in the 16th century. Back then, Venice was an attractive city, liberal and just, wealthy and unscrupulous, culturally active, and refined in taste. These ingredients created the fertile ground for a huge competition of artists.

When history blends into the legend, Tintoretto was a pupil of Titian, badly banished from his studio when the master realized how skilled the first was; Veronese should have been the ideal follower of Titian; Veronese was in trouble with the Inquisition; Titian died when almost 100 years old; Vasari spoke ill of Tintoretto. These are some of the stories that criticism has advanced to justify these incredible artistic worlds.

Led by an expert on Venetian Art, Sara Grinzato, this interactive seminar will fascinate art lovers. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of the Renaissance art heritage of Venice in public and private contexts, in both sacred and profane subjects; of the aesthetic principles of Venetian colorism, of the mythical rivalry between Titian and Tintoretto.

Sara Grinzato is a professional art historian, tourist guide, and conservator. The Veneto villas have been one of her major fields of research for years, especially as far as the 18-century decoration is concerned. She can boast a number of publications on Venetian Villas and above all on the Riviera del Brenta from the 16th to the 19th century.
