Tintoretto, birth of a genius, exhibition
From Wednesday, March 7 2018 to Sunday, July 1 2018
Immerse yourself in the universe of a fascinating painter.
For the 500th anniversary of the birth of Tintoretto, the Musée du Luxembourg celebrates one of the most fascinating painters of the Venetian Renaissance.
The exhibition focuses on the first fifteen years of his career, a decisive and critical period to understand what made him who he was. It follows the early years of a young, ambitious man, steeped in Venetian tradition but open to anything new from the rest of Italy, determined to revitalise painting in cosmopolitan Venice.
The paintings on display reflect the diversity of this artist's work and his desire to attract attention and impress people with his daring.
Ultimately, the exhibition traces the social advancement of a man from humble beginnings, who thanks to his talent, managed to climb the social ladder and make a name for himself.
