Awesome: Tintoretto’s Paradisal Masterpieces

Liturgical Arts Journal, Kinga Lipinska: This year marks several significant art anniversaries: Rembrandt, Da Vinci, and Tintoretto are all artists who are especially remembered in 2019. In the United States, The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC is hosting a splendid exhibition that honors Tintoretto. Among the many visiting masterpieces on view at the NGA is the painting sketch for the Paradise – a canvas often considered to be the artist’s greatest achievements, an illustrious summation of his genius. The sketch in the National Gallery is a scale version of the actual and vast painting housed in the Palazzo Ducale in Venice. More here with pictures.
