  • A complete Roundup ' nationalistic ' to all artists, major and minor, sons of the Serenissima, who contributed, with their masterpieces to make perpetual remembrance of the Republic for ever! Us scholars, but we are a bit fussy and severi (otherwise we wouldn't be scholars ...) and so I'm going to start my review with a slight note. It is true that many paintings come and go, performed at various exhibitions around the world and others, in deposits, replace them then when they put in place not just from those who claim that job knowledge and interpretation of the painting, but who is there as ' insider ' should sometimes be a little spin to see if everything has been relocated to the right place ... in 1 room num. Sunday 19 March 5, 2017 was signalled the crowning of the Virgin by Stefano plebanus of St Agnes, a contemporary of Lorenzo veneziano and instead there was a Madonna and Child Friendly fabianensis f. signature it seemed only right to report it. The massive canvas by Tiepolo, the exaltation of the cross, impresses with its Majesty, is like a ray of light and faith which gets inside, is from Toledo and not far from there to Madrid, he died the great lagoon. Particularly touching the canvas of the Veronese entitled Venice receives the homage of Hercules and Ceres. Thinking of Paolo Caliari, known as the Veronese by that jewel of city that is Verona, I cannot conceal my regret Recalling the wedding at Cana. Napoleon, who by trade was the leader (and did it well) had unfortunately a very common habit to statesmen, that-that is-to fall in love and to misappropriate others ' stuff and so, among the many works that he cheated around Europe to the point that the Spaniards (who do not forgive anyone, how do we, instead, we Italians) nicknamed him Napoladron , thought fit to cut in different parts, for easy transport, the painting of the wedding at Cana, which then seamlessly reassembled, is on display in the Louvre, and even the efforts of good Canova, managed to get her at home, otherwise probably would today exposed at the Academy. The beauty of the model who lent his face to Madonnas by Cima da Conegliano is unmatched, as well as a touching sweetness is the face, full of pain, of women in Piety by the same author. Hits the Madonna of the Cherubim of Giovanni Bellini, where Cherubim are painted with red cinnabar, used also in paintings of Pompeii and the Madonna degli alberetti, first work signed and dated by the great Venetian. Tormenting the scene represented by Bonifazio de Pitati in his massacre of the innocents, as penetrating is the look of the famous portrait of a gentleman in his study of Lorenzo Lotto, which proves even more its good qualities as a portraitist. In place of an opera Bellini's lent for an exhibition in Denver in Colorado, there is a table of Gianfrancesco da Tolmezzo depicting a Madonna and child with angels and especially mystical figure of Advertising by Antonello de Saliba, Antonello Messina as well as the most prestigious uncle, who also spent periods in Veneto from distant Trinacria denotandosi in his work doubtless influenced belliniani. One of the perhaps most famous of the Academy is the storm of Giorgione, whose allegorical meaning is still being studied and not at all clear. Meanwhile that some ' luminary ' should give its explanation is final ' I personally don't make it so long to find what the artist, however the complex personality, he meant ..... I would see as an exaltation of fruitfulness of a woman: a maiden, oblivious to the storm that the background should be maturing with lightning and Thunderbolts and indifferent to the look a bit voyeuristic a soldier? PAL? (but no sheep ...) breastfeeding her child winking almost mischievously toward bystanders, almost inviting other girls to do the same. Finally, the exhibition dedicated to Michele Giambono, documented between 1420 and 1462, last season's late-Gothic interpreter in these lands, which I drew a Madonna and child, a goldfinch, symbol of passion.

  • Masterpieces of Italian art from 1300 to 1800, shame about the halls of the 800 shut on the day of my visit. The rest is a wonder among Tiepolo, Tiziano, Canaletto and other great interpreters of Italian art. Beautiful details of the painting "relief", from noble to scaffolding friezes studs to badges and lamps in crowd scenes, to dinner at the home of Levi by Veronese, who also says the pride (justified) of the author.

  • Well, you have to like your devotional Catholic painters, and your grand thematic layouts, but hard to argue with the scale and thoroughness. The guides could be clearer in terms of building layout. Would have liked a few more Titians and a few less of the second tier, but very impressive nonetheless.
  • Not overwhelmingly impressive, but I was particularly interested in their exhibit that covered the restoration of several pieces. It closed earlier than wrecked so didn't get to see it all.
  • An amazing collection that is well organized allowing the visitor to progress at ease and ansorb the works of art at a leisurely pace.
  • The David statue is really the highlight of this place and it is not all that big... But it is well worth it to see David! I highly recommend downloading an audio tour on your phone.
  • Old forgotten masters in a neglected but beautiful art museum. This certainly isn't the grande exposition of the louvre or the national portrait gallery but the dark religious motifs tell of a time guilt of conscience has yet to forget. My favorite part was looking at the glorious paintings of Venice of ye olde time and recalling, "Wait a second, I've just walked from there and seen that".
