  4. Tintoretto (Domenico Robusti) - "the last supper", 1594
    Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice, Italy

    oil on canvas 1594, 365 x 588 cm

    Wikipedia: "A comparison of Tintoretto's final The Last Supper with Leonardo da Vinci's treatment of the same subject provides an instructive demonstration of how artistic styles evolved over the course of the Renaissance. Leonardo's is all classical repose. The disciples radiate away from Christ in almost-mathematical symmetry. In the hands of Tintoretto, the same event becomes dramatic, as the human figures are joined by angels. A servant is foregrounded, perhaps in reference to the Gospel of John 13:14-16. In the restless dynamism of his composition, his dramatic use of light, and his emphatic perspective effects, Tintoretto seems a baroque artist ahead of his time."

    Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice

    The exhibition intend to be, above all, a significant tribute to the work of Marisa Merz.
    One of the most significant and interesting artists of the past forty years and indisputably a protagonist of the Italian art scene since the end of the 1960s when she became part of the important Arte Povera movement, Marisa Merz has become known over the years for a career which developed in a highly personal and, at times, solitary manner.
