As the part、Nissha is sponsoring of the special exhibition “Venetian Renaissance Paintings from the Gallerie dell’Accademia, Venice” in The National Art Center, Tokyo from July 13 to October 10, 2016.

The Gallerie dell’Accademia first opened to the public in 1817 on the basis of masterpieces in the care of the Venetian art academy, Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia. The Gallerie dell’Accademia today possesses a rich collection of Venetian paintings from the 14th to the 18th century, some 2,000 works in all. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Italy and Japan, an exhibition of works from the Gallerie dell’Accademia will be held in Japan for the first time. The exhibition’s theme—Venetian painting of the Italian Renaissance.

This exhibition will survey Venetian painting from the 15th to early 17th century through some 60 of the Gallerie dell’Accademia’s most important works. Arriving in Japan will be a dazzling array of masterpieces by painters ranging from Giovanni Bellini to Carlo Crivelli, Vittore Carpaccio, Tiziano Vecellio, Jacopo Tintoretto, and Paolo Veronese. Of special note will be the Annunciation (Church of San Salvador, Venice), a late-period altarpiece of large scale by Tiziano, the great master of the Venetian High Renaissance. An exhibition thus focused on Venetian paintings of the Renaissance period has almost no precedent in Japan. It will be a precious opportunity to marvel at paintings that counted among the splendors of Renaissance Venice, City of Water.(*Quotation from the official website)
