The Nagoya / Boston Museum of Fine Arts is celebrating one of the world’s most captivating cities – Venice. This exhibition offers about 130 famous works of art that depict the magic of Venice over the centuries.

Venice is one of the world’s most romantic cities, which is why it has been the subject of many artists’ works. It is said that the city dates back to the 5th century and it flourished as a major centre for East-West trade. Its rich history and picturesque backdrop of small islands linked by bridges and separated by canals has been an inspiration for many world-famous artists. Not to mention the glittering carnival masks, crooning gondoliers and awe-inspiring sunsets over bustling canals.

This exhibition features pieces from many art movements, including the Renaissance (Titian), landscape and marine painters (Boudin) and Impressionism (Monet). It will allow you to explore Venice through the eyes of the masters and be privy to its beauty from right here in Nagoya. There are also examples of delicate Venetian lace, silk and hand-blown glass. – Lauren Ottaway
