La Rivincita del Colore sulla Linea

Uffizi Gallery


October 18, 2016


January 8, 2017

The exhibition La Rivincita del Colore sulla Linea (The Revenge of Colour over Line) at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence displays Venetian drawings from the period between Titian (1477-1576) and Canaletto (1697-1768).

The exhibition dispels the myth that artists from the Veneto region, and, in particular, Venice, were interested only in painting and not in drawing. The works are from the collections of the Department of Prints and Drawings of the Uffizi Gallery and the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, the world’s first university museum.

Besides drawings by Titian and Canaletto, there are also drawings by artists like Paolo Veronese, Tintoretto, Giambattista Piazzetta, Il Pordenone and Vittore Carpaccio.
