Splendors of the Renaissance at Museo Correr in Venice

The first exhibition dedicated to Andrea Schiavone, the inventor of an innovative style. Painting that was sensational and an artist who ‘stood out from the crowd’, admired by Tintoretto, Carracci and El Greco. 140 works from all over the world and 80 works by the artist on display together for the very first time at the Correr Museum. From the very start the fi gure and ‘sound’ of Andrea Meldola called Schiavone (Zara, 1510 c. – Venice, 1563) stood out as a sensational novelty who was ground-breaking and in a certain way enigmatic on the extraordinary fi eld of Venetian Renaissance painting, with its polyphonic concerto that included outstanding artists first in Venice, and then in Europe. With his totally new and unconventional painting language, within just a few years after his arrival in Venice (perhaps around 1535), Schiavone had divided both the opinion of the public and critics: on the one side, Aretino and others admired and befriended him, on the other, Pino and his followers did not hide their contempt.

A fascinating and modern artist who therefore ‘stood out from the crowd’ and it is to this Dalmatian artist that, after decades of studies and research, the first monographic exhibition will be devoted, offering the public the first real opportunity to discover Schiavone’s central role in the golden age of painting in the Venetian Republic. The exhibition will be held at Correr Museum in Venice, from 28 November 2015 to 10 April 2016, promoted by Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia in collaboration with 24 ORE Cultura, curated by Enrico Maria Dal Pozzolo and Lionello Puppi. Accompanied by a catalogue (24 ORE Cultura) that will inevitably become a reference point for studies on the Italian Cinquecento, this not only be an exhibition of research, but also and above all an amazing exhibition owing to the number and quality of the works on display (over 140 including paintings, drawings and prints, and an extensive collection of historical books and documents), some of which have highly prestigious origins.

On display together for the very first time are more than 80 of Andrea Meldola’s works paintings, drawings, prints– most of which have never been shown at an exhibition before and are on loan from Queen Elizabeth’s Royal Collection, the Kunsthistorisches Museum and Albertina in Vienna, the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Croatian Academy of Science and Arts in Zagabria, the Gemäldegalerie in Dresden, Musée du Louvre in Paris and the London British Museum; for the very first time, in addition to works on display for the first time, visitors will also be able to admire cornerstones of Schiavone’ painting, alongside important paintings by other great artists of the period in comparison, who were a reference point for the artist and with whom he had a relationship of ‘giving’ and ‘receiving’.

Masterpieces by his ideal maestro Parmigianino – the marvellous Madonna with Child from the Uffizi – a friend of his youth, Jacopo Tintoretto, Titian – with the Aldobrandini Madonna from the National Gallery in London – as well as works by Vasari, Salviati, Bordon, Bassano, Polidoro da Lanciano, and Lambert Sustris; all of these artists were not only important for Schiavone, but also for the extraordinary scene of Venetian art in the age of Mannerism.
