Head of Exhibitions, Agnes Valencak, introduces the exhibition which features a hundred drawings from the Uffizi, Florence, the Ashmolean and Christ Church, Oxford. Drawing in Venice is a ground-breaking exhibition based on new research. Venetian art has long been associated with brilliant colours and free brushwork, but drawing has been written out of its history. This exhibition highlights the significance of drawing as a concept and as a practice in the artistic life of Venice. It reveals the variety of aims, purposes and techniques in drawing from Bellini, Titian and Tintoretto to Tiepolo and Canaletto. Many of the works on loan to the exhibition have not been seen since the 1950s.
