Veronese, Judith mit dem Haupt des Holofernes, um 1582

Venetian masterpieces from Titian to Canaletto

In its 10th anniversary year, the DomQuartier presents in the Residenzgalerie the first guest appearance of the Vienna Kunsthistorisches Museum in Salzburg. The comprehensive exhibition tells the extraordinary success story of Venetian painting from Renaissance to Rococo. Looked at together with individual examples of other art genres, it gives a multi-faceted picture of Venetian art production.
The title The Colours of la Serenissima plays on a certain ambiguity, referring on the one hand to the particular use of colour in Venetian painting, and on the other to the actual colours in which the town presents itself to visitors in its mood lighting and the opulence of its luxury items. Portraits of elegant Venetians reflect the self-conception of a successful trading power, evocative landscape painting invites contemplation. New types of religious paintings affect viewers on a highly emotional level.
