Rosalba Carriera, miniatures on ivory, the new exhibition at Ca’ Rezzonico

13/10/2023 - 09/01/2024

The exhibition Rosalba Carriera, miniatures on ivory presents the works of an artist, contended by European courts, famous for portraits of personalities, of varying notoriety. Those works are visual testimonies of a century, brilliant and at the same time full of tensions, but fascinating in its contradictions. The exhibition, set up in the enveloping atmosphere of the renovated palace of Ca' Rezzonico-Museo del Settecento Veneziano, presents miniatures on ivory, small in size, painted by Rosalba Carriera with the same vivid strokes as painting on canvas. Those "small" works, there are 36 of them, are compared with "large" pastel ones, which are part of the collections of the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia and others lent by provenati, illustrating a lesser-known production of the artist: an elegant tribute for the 350th anniversary of the painter's birth (1673-1757).
