The Portland Art Museum presents an exhibition exploring the golden age of art and music in the Republic of Venice between the early 16th century and the fall of the Venetian Republic at the close of the 18th century. This was the period dominated by innovative painters such as Tintoretto, Tiepolo, Canaletto, and Guardi, as well as composers Willaert, Gabrieli, Monteverdi, and Vivaldi. This spectacular exhibition explores the important interrelationships of the visual arts and music in the city’s civic ceremonies, festivals, and culture. February 15 to May 11 at the Portland Art Museum.
