Exhibition Now Open - Titian to Canaletto: Drawing in Venice

This ground breaking exhibition, in collaboration with the Uffizi in Florence, traces the role of drawing in Venice and its importance over three centuries, dispelling the myth that Venetian artists, including their greatest painter, Titian, had no interest in drawing.

Titian to Canaletto: Drawing in Venice, featuring a contemporary response by Jenny Saville, is now open. The first major exhibition of Venetian drawings in the UK, it includes more than 100 magnificent works from the Uffizi, the Ashmolean, and Christ Church, Oxford, by artists such as Titian, Tintoretto and Canaletto.

In a parallel exhibition, Jenny Saville Drawing, one of the UKs most celebrated contemporary artists, Jenny Saville, has produced new work on paper and canvas in response to the powerful qualities of Venetian drawing.



Book your ticket now to discover how the splendour of Venice and its shimmering light influenced artists, and trace the role of drawing in Venice and its importance over three centuries.
