Tour the city of Venice through the panoramic paintings of one of its most celebrated chroniclers The lagoon city of Venice was home to some of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance. Among them was Vittore Carpaccio (c. 1465-1525), whose body of work largely remains to this day in the city in which he lived and died. Influenced by Early Netherlandish art and resistant to Humanist trends, Carpaccio is today known for having developed a style that set him apart from his peers. He worked primarily under the patronage of various scuole, or confraternities, to illustrate Christian anecdotes. Replete with illustrative detail and an earthy color palette, Carpaccio's paintings are uniquely emotive in their depictions of saintly miracles. This new publication invites readers from around the world to tour Venice through Carpaccio's masterpieces and discover the artist who was exceptionally adept at fusing the real Venice and the myth of Venice into a single vision. Carpaccio in Venice: A Guide presents all of the artist's works conserved in the city, providing updated scholarship for both the paintings and their original locations in light of recent restoration efforts. Sites include the Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni, the Doge's Palace, the Museo Correr, the Gallerie dell'Accademia, along with many other locations.
