Description

Narrated by Stanley Tucci

This film was made possible by the HRH Foundation and was produced by the department of exhibition programs, National Gallery of Art, Washington, in conjunction with the exhibition Tintoretto: Artist of Renaissance Venice.

 

Jacopo Tintoretto changed the face of Venetian painting. His fast and furious brushwork was likened to a thunderbolt. Combining the rich colors of Titian with the dramatic muscularity of Michelangelo's figures, Tintoretto covered the walls of his native city with pictures that astounded his contemporaries; Vasari declared him "the most extraordinary brain that the art of painting has ever produced." This documentary examines Tintoretto's career with original footage of his works in the churches and palaces of Venice.
