Musée du Luxembourg, Paris


“Tintoretto. Birth of a genius” from March 07 to July 01



After the exhibition in the Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Köln, the Musée du Luxembourg celebrates the 500th anniversary of the birth of Tintoretto, one of the most fascinating painters of the Venetian Renaissance.

Discover this beautiful exhibition focuses on the first 15 years of Tintoretto’s career, a decisive and critical period to understand who he was.

It follows the early years of a young, ambitious man, steeped in Venetian tradition but open to anything new from the rest of Italy, determined to revitalise painting in cosmopolitan Venice.

The paintings on display reflect the diversity of this artist’s work and his desire to attract attention and impress people with his daring.

Ultimately, the exhibition traces the social advancement of a man from humble beginnings, who thanks to his talent, managed to climb the social ladder and make a name for himself.
