Manet. Return to Venice - Exceptional Exhibition at Doge's Palace

From: 24-04-2013 To: 18-08-2013
Doge's Palace

  • LOCATION: Doge's Palace

The exceptional “Manet. Return to Venice” exhibition, open from 24 April to 18 August 2013 at the Doge’s apartments inside the Doge’s Palace in Venice is the result of an important collaboration between the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and the Fondazione Civici Musei di Venezia. The ExhibitionManet. Return to Venice” at the Doge’s Palace has the precious task of taking a highly scientific approach to the great French painter Manet, one of the most brilliant interpreters of the renewal of visual arts in the second half of the nineteenth century, for the first time ever in Italy. The original exhibition Manet. Return to Venice presents a collection of works that have never been shown together which have been generously loaned from the Musée d’Orsay, such as Angelina (1865), La Lecture (1865/1866-1873), Le Fifre (1866), Le Balcon (1868-1869), Sur la plage (1873), Portrait de Stéphane Mallarmé (1876), Lola de Valence (1862- 1863, modified after 1867), with the latter having been superbly restored for the occasion. These masterpieces are joined by other important paintings from the United States, Great Britain and Germany as well the extraordinary participation for the occasion of the painting Olympia (1863), also owned by the Musée d’Orsay, which has never left France before. This is a fundamental work of art to understand the critical approach of the exhibition which focuses on the Italian soul of Manet, in juxtaposition with the Venus of Urbino by Titian, on loan from the Uffizi which was an inspiration for Manet’s paintings. Opening hours: from Sunday to Thursday, from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm – Friday and Saturday, from 9.00 am to 8.00 pm (ticket office closes 1 hour before) Full price ticket: € 13,00
