MEMBERS ONLY: TOUR OF CELEBRATING TINTORETTO AT THE MET WITH CURATOR ANDREA BAYER
23 January 2019 / 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
CIMA Members are invited to join us for a private afternoon visit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition, Celebrating Tintoretto: Portrait Paintings and Studio Drawings. The tour will be led by the curator of the exhibition, Andrea Bayer (Deputy Director for Collections and Administration at the MET).
Jacopo Tintoretto is one of the most celebrated sixteenth century Venetian painters, acclaimed for his large-scale narrative scenes and his intuitive portraits. In celebration of the five hundredth anniversary of his birth, the MET’s exhibition explores a little-studied aspect of Tintoretto’s portraiture–its shockingly modern immediacy.
The exhibition shows portrait studies from American and European museums and private collections, brought together for the first time, drawing them into a larger discussion of the artist’s portraiture and approach to painting, as well as the artistic practice within the artist’s workshop.
The exhibition will be closing January 27th, so this is a wonderful opportunity to experience the show before it’s over!
Please note: CIMA Members will receive a private invitation link to RSVP for this event. Limited to 20 members only!
Members receive free admission to CIMA, access outside of regular public hours, a copy of the annual catalogue, and invitations to exclusive events and receptions.
