The Serene is given pride of place! From September 26, 2018 to January 21, 2019, the Grand Palais offers an exhibition dedicated to the City of Venice during its thriving period on the level of the arts, Eblouissante Venise [Dazzling Venice]. The exhibition highlights the City of the Doges in a new colorful light in tribute to the city and its art page, through the choice of “the most significative paintings, sculptures, drawings and items as well as comedians and musicians performing in situ”.
At the dawn of the 18th century, Venice dazzles with the talent of its artists as well as by its painting and music. An influence owed to the presence of renown artists in the city such as Piazzetta, Gianbattista Tiepolo, Canaletto, Hasse, Porpora, Brustolon and even Vivaldi. Arts that are encouraged by the city since within the “Ospedali” (or “hospital” that used to welcome the most needy), young orphan girls or poor received in-depth and complete music education.
Artists influencing throughout Europe, often invited by foreign sponsors: portraitists Canaletto, Rosabla Carriera, Pellegrini and even Bellotto are an example among others, travelling to France, Austria and even England. A myth in Venice, “a unique city because of its history, its architecture, its lifestyle, its festive vitality” that the Grand Palais analyzes through rooms and installations.
