Bosch @ Palazzo Grimani
14 January 2011 Leave a comment
The exhibition of national collections at the Grimani Palace continues with three paintings by the most visionary artist in the history of art: Hieronymus Bosch. Following the great success of the exhibition dedicated to Giorgione’s famous works, which inaugurated the opening of the Grimani Palace as a permanent exhibition venue in Venice, three more absolute masterpieces that have been missing from the showcase scene for some time will be on display. It will be possible to admire the Visions of the Hereafter (1500 – 1503), the Tryptich of Saint Liberata (1505) and the Hermit Saints Tryptich (1510) by this celebrated Flemish painter (‘s Hertogenbosch, Holland 1450 – 1516), from the Doge’s Palace in Venice. This exhibition, wished and curated by Vittorio Sgarbi, falls within the project for enhancing the national collections hosted in Venice, as a tribute to the Dutch master, who sojourned in Venice in all probability between 1499 and 1502. The event is promoted by the Special Superintendence for State Museums and Galleries of the City of Venice, organised and produced by Arthemisia Group.
