The exhibition the Splendors of the Renaissance In Venice. Andrea Schiavone among Parmigianino, Tintoretto and Titian at the Museo Correr is the first retrospective dedicated to Andrea Meldolla (1510-1563), better known as Schiavone. With his innovative painting style, Schiavone was an artist who ‘stood out from the crowd’ and was greatly admired by Tintoretto, Carracci and El Greco.

More than 140 works from around the world and over 80 of Schiavone’s own works in the form of paintings, drawings, prints can be seen together for the very first time. Visitors are able to admire Schiavone’s paintings, alongside important works by other great artists of the period.

Masterpieces on display include Parmigianino’s Madonna and Child with Saint from the Uffizi and Titian’s The Aldobrandini Madonna from the National Gallery in London, as well as works by artists such as Vasari, Salviati, Bassano, and Sustris.
