"Prints from the Serenissima: Connoisseurship and the Graphic Arts in 18th-Century Venice"
2002-11-23 until 2003-03-05
Fogg Art Museum, Harvard
Cambridge, MA, USA

62 prints from 18th-century Venice will be on display at the Fogg Art Museum from November 23, 2002 through March 9, 2003. The exhibition highlights the vibrant world of printmakers, collectors, and dealers who thrived in the Venetian Republic (known as La Serenissima, the Most Serene Republic) before its last doge surrendered to Napoleonís invading troops in 1797.

"Most exhibitions and art historical research dealing with Venetian art tend to focus on the Renaissance or Baroque periods," said James Cuno, Elizabeth and John Moors Cabot, director of the Harvard University Art Museums. "In contrast, this show will highlight the last one hundred years of the Venetian Republic and perhaps lead to a more qualified judgment about this so-called decadent period."

Organized by Darius A. Spieth, Philip and Lynn Straus Curatorial Intern during the 20002001 academic year, the exhibition includes 39 engravings, etchings, and chiaroscuro woodcuts from the Foggís Print Department, as well as loans from Harvardís Houghton Library, the Harvard College Map Collection, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
