Venetian rivalry

Today, July 18, we visited the Museum of Fine Arts. We had tickets to Titian, Tintoretto and Vernonese, an exhibit comparing and contrasting the styles of three artists who were active at the same time in Venice. It was really interesting to see an exhibition mounted this way. Instead of a timeline approach, each artist’s take on a subject was hung side by side. There was also an audio tour to explain the paintings and the similarities among them as well as the motives behind their paintings. Fascinating!
