An exhibition on Titian and 16th century painting between Venice and Brescia to be held soon in Brescia

Brescia's Museo di Santa Giulia will host an exhibition dedicated to Titian and 16th-century painting between Venice and Brescia from March 21 to July 1, 2018.

The Santa Giulia Museum in Brescia will host the exhibition"Titian and Sixteenth-Century Painting between Venice and Brescia" from March 21 to July 1, 2018.

The exhibition, curated by Francesco Frangi, is dedicated to one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance and aims to analyze the relationship between the artistic cultures of Brescia and Venice during the 16th century.

Among the protagonists of the exhibition will be the Polyptych created by Titian between 1520 and 1522 for Bishop Altobello Averoldi, preserved in the church of Santi Nazaro e Celso in Brescia.
One section will be devoted to the Allegories of Brescia made in the 1560s for the Salone della Loggia, which were destroyed during the fire of 1575.

Therefore, the exhibition will trace the great painter’s influence on Brescia painting through more than fifty works from important national and international museums.

“The Averoldi complex,” the statement reads, “represents a watershed in the history of 16th-century Brescian painting, as his arrival in the city provoked chain reactions in the most receptive exponents of local art, who could not help but be confronted with that model. For example, Romanino’s training, which can be placed starting from the end of the first decade of the sixteenth century, as well as Moretto’s, which followed a little later, are played out in a constant dialogue with Titian’s exemplars, also a consequence of the two artists’ youthful frequentation of the lagoon context. A somewhat different case was that of Savoldo, for whom the relationship with Titian was established only in coincidence with the artist’s definitive move to Venice, which took place around 1515, when the painter was about 35 years old. In addition to the strictly stylistic level, the familiarity of the Brescian artists with Titian and the Venetian milieu finds important confirmation in the sharing of similar types of representation, particularly with regard to paintings for private devotion.”
