500th Anniversary of Jacopo Tintoretto's Birth Celebrated in Exhibitions in Italy and USA

In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the birth of the Venetian Renaissance master Jacopo Tintoretto (1518/1519–1594), the National Gallery of Art, Washington, will present three exhibitions in 2019 that explore the artist's achievement as a painter and draftsman as well as the great printmakers in Venice of his day.

In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the birth of the Venetian Renaissance master Jacopo Tintoretto (1518/1519–1594), the National Gallery of Art, Washington, will present three exhibitions in 2019 that explore the artist's achievement as a painter and draftsman as well as the great printmakers in Venice of his day.

Coorganized with the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia with the special cooperation of the Gallerie dell'Accademia, Tintoretto: The Artist of Venice at 500 will open at the Palazzo Ducale, Venice, beginning in September 2018, and then travel to the Gallery—its only other venue—in early 2019, showcasing some 70 paintings and drawings. 

Drawing in Tintoretto's Venice will present some 60 sheets to explore the drawing practice of Tintoretto as well as his place in the Venetian tradition and will premiere at The Morgan Library & Museum, New York, in October 2018 before coming to Washington. 

Venetian Prints in the Time of Tintoretto will showcase some 40 prints, from critical sources for Tintoretto's artistic formation to striking graphic responses to the expressiveness of Tintoretto's style. Drawn from the Gallery's permanent collection, this final exhibition can only be seen in Washington and includes works by Parmigianino and Giuseppe Scolari among others. All three Tintoretto exhibitions will open at the Gallery on March 3, 2019.
