“Venedig. Stadt der Künstler” drew the crowds at Hamburg’s Bucerius Kunst Forum with its magnificent range of masterpieces by Canaletto, William Turner, Jacopo Tintoretto and many others. The book of the same name features painstaking portraits of the city’s movers and shakers, idealising depictions of its busy squares but also early photographs.
The special appeal of “Venedig. Stadt der Künstler” lies in the interplay of outstanding art and comprehensive background information on the history of the picturesquely situated city which has always been a buzzing hive of activity – from merchants in the old days to the hoards of holidaymakers of today.
