It’s Tintoretto’s 500th Birthday and We’re Still Celebrating
Monday, November 11
Celebrations and exhibitions of the artist’s work are marking his 500th birthday in cities around the world. What explains his ongoing and consistent popularity? Is it the style of his painting or his reputation as a rebellious artist that makes him so enduringly appealing? He has consistently been discussed as an impetuous genius, painting quickly in a fury of invention. Was he as haphazard as he has often been portrayed? Our panel of experts brings differing perspectives to these questions against the backdrop of two current New York exhibitions, Drawing in Tintoretto’s Venice at the Morgan Library & Museum, and Celebrating Tintoretto: Portrait Paintings and Studio Drawings at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
