Venetian Masters at National Gallery

An exhibition of Venetian Renaissance masterworks will be on display at Washington D.C.'s National Gallery of Art June 18–September 17, 2006. Bellini, Giorgione, Titian, and the Renaissance of Venetian Painting will include a selection of paintings from 16th century Venice.

The exhibit, in conjunction with the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, will feature 60 paintings "that best exemplify the new ideas and ideals: music, the pastoral landscape, the female nude, and the romantic portrait."

A catalogue of the exhibit will be available. The exhibition was reviewed in an article for the New York Times:
