Posted on 2012-10-31 10:03:24 in PAST_EXHIBITIONS

Raphael to Picasso. Stories of gazes, faces and figures is a remarkable exhibition currently staged in the splendid setting of the Basilica Palladiana, Vicenza. Around one hundred paintings from museums worldwide tell the great story of portrait and figurative painting from the fifteenth to the late twentieth century in four broad thematic sections that offer much more than a merely chronological approach to works by a host of outstanding artists: from Raphael, Botticelli, Mantegna, Bellini, Giorgione, Titian, Dürer, Cranach, Pontormo, Rubens, Caravaggio, Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Velázquez, El Greco, Goya, Tiepolo up to the Impressionists, Manet, Van Gogh and great twentieth-century artists, such as Munch, Picasso, Matisse, Modigliani, Giacometti and Bacon.
