The art of the great masters of the Venetian 1500s, through sixty masterpiece drawings, unique, vivid works of art in their own right.

Through about sixty masterpieces of drawing and a number of paintings for comparison, an overview of the art of the great masters of the Venetian 1500s, from Veronese to Tintoretto, Titian to Giovanni Antonio de’ Sacchis known as Il Pordenone. The exhibition, held in the city of Pordenone in 2000, documents the passage of drawing from a simple preparatory tool in the creation of paintings to an art form in its own right, with a unique character of freshness and immediacy. The catalogue, featuring splendid images and absorbing critical essays, explains the drawings in the show, provided by leading international museums, and analyzes various aspects: the history of drawing in the Veneto and Friuli in the 16th century, the forms and figures of the sacred in painting in Friuli, signs of faith in Venetian art, problems of iconoclasm from the 1400s to the 1500s, observations on technique and style. A very useful tool, not only for scholars, but for all those who love great art.
