Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts

The exhibition is curated by Giovanni C.F. Villa with Vittoria Markova and presents an exceptional selection of works by Giambattista Tiepolo, Giambattista Pittoni, Luca Carlevarijs, Giambattista Piazzetta, Canaletto, Francesco Guardi and Pietro Longhi. Fifty-seven works, including twenty-three from the Museo Civico di Palazzo Chiericati in Vicenza, twenty-five from the Pushkin Museum and nine from the Gallerie d'Italia - Palazzo Leoni Montanari. It is the first time these works are brought together in the same galleries, which represents a unique opportunity to study them and the multifaceted styles of Venetian painting in the Rococo era. If Canaletto is the master of landscapes, Guardi arbitrarily mixes real life and invention to craft whimsical compositions, while Longhi carries the standard of genre painting.
