Great Art in a Great City
Lindsey B. Apr 1, 2013
Venice is a city renowned for its art and culture, which means that a trip to the former republic wouldn't be complete without viewing one of its many great art museums. One of the best is the Ca' Pesaro, a once-magnificent Baroque palace off the Grand Canal. While it has enjoyed time as both a residence and university, it is now famous for its magnificent art collection. With masterpieces by Gustav Klimt, Marc Chagall and Henri Matisse, among other fine art works, this collection provides a captivating look at painting over the centuries. You have the chance to see how the art form has evolved over the years and see the work of many great artists, from the time of the Renaissance all the way through the 20th century. Whether you're an art expert or don't know must about the masters, you will marvel at the dazzling array presented at the Ca' Pesaro. This museum is a must see during your time in Venice. Aside from its fine collection, it also offers beautiful views of the Grand Canal from its cafe and terrace.
A Symbol of Venice
Tara R. Dec 13, 2012
To the curators at Ca’ Pesaro modern art stops past 2000, but the collection they’ve settled on—despite reaching back to Titian and stopping short of the new millennium—is exquisite. Seeing Titian and Tintoretto alongside experimental young artists’ work is inspiring. To me, it represents Venice’s timeless nature and ability to seamlessly integrate the past with the present. Their resilience in the face of sinking and flooding and their untiring defense of their artwork is one of the qualities that makes this city so special. Ca’ Pesaro houses the works of incredible artists from Italy, its environs and even the Orient, but it also has the privilege to serve as a potent symbol of Venice herself.
