Art in Venice

Art in Venice surveys Venice's marvellous treasury of painting, sculpture, architecture, glass and precious objects. We begin with the city's first founders as an independent republic. Through its art we see its rise to an independent republic. Through its art we see its rise to international power and prestige in the Renaissance, its gentle decline in the eighteenth century into a resort of frivolous delights and gracious pleasures, and its resurgence in the modern era as one of the great art centres of the world.
