Venice in the 18th century was perhaps the most alluring city in Europe—the jewel of Italy. This glittering metropolis was the birthplace and most constant residence of the peripatetic Giacomo Casanova (1725–1798). Explore the fabled palaces and hidden corners of his hometown and gain insight into the great Venetian artists featured in the exhibition, including Canaletto, Bellotto, Tiepolo, Longhi, Carriera, and Piranesi. 

Frederick Ilchman, chair and Mrs. Russell W. Baker Curator of Paintings, Art of Europe
