The evolution of three great Venetian painters: Carpaccio, Veronese and Tiepolo

If you would like to deepen your knowledge of some great Venetian painters, we suggest some tours that will allow you to follow the carrier of excellent masters, such as Carpaccio, Veronese and Tiepolo.

In his masterpieces, Carpaccio shows Venice as it was at the end of the 15th century and at the beginning of the 16th: buildings, environments, costumes, religion, politics appear as if in a photograph in the large canvases painted by this incredible artist. From the Accademia Galleries up to the Scuola Dalmata (the building of the Dalmatian confraternity), we can travel through time at the discovery of an exceptional world.
Veronese, one of the absolute geniuses of the Venetian Renaissance, left a great amount of works of art in Venice, where he eventually became the official painter of the Republic. He started out in St. Sebastian’s church, where you can admire his marvelous frescoes, and ended up in the Doges’ Palace and in St. Mark’s Library. Quite a few paintings by this master are now displayed also in the Accademia Galleries.
Tiepolo was the main character of 18th century painting in Venice. His works attract the viewer’s attention because of the lightness of his palette, the daring perspectives, the light touch of his brush, both in his religious and in his allegorical masterpieces. Starting from Scuola Grande dei Carmini, passing by the Gesuati church and then ending up at Ca’ Rezzonico, we can unveil the magnificence and the skills of this great painter, to appreciate eventually the Rococo taste of the period.
