“La cultura dell’incontro” with the art of Jacopo Bassano
A wonderful display at Kursaal by the cultural association “Mons. Marcato
“La cultura dell’incontro” (The culture of the get-together) is the name of the art display organized by the cultural association “Mons. Giovanni Marcato” with the patronage of the town hall. The exhibit is programmed from the 28th of May to the 15th of July in the Kursaal in Piazza Brescia and will focus on the theme of the get-together of the great Bassano “dynasty”, the main protagonist of the Venetian pictorial scene and of the international collectors’ market between the XVI and the XVII century. Highlights of the display will be the painted narrations, the depicted parables, the big, illustrated tales of Jacopo Bassano and of his prolific and blooming studio.
For the occasion, the “biblical-pastoral” paintings of the famous Bassano dynasty of the late 1500s/early 1600s, a true invention of Jacopo that all European collectors aim to own, have been chosen to inspire a reflection on the modern themes of gatherings, get-togethers, and hospitality, in addition to the classical theme of the relationship between art and faith. Supper at Emmaus, The Adoration of the Shepherds, Christ in the House of Martha, Mary and Lazarus are just a few of the exhibit’s subject. The final piece of the display is a selection of twenty engravings inspired by the work of the Bassanos and created by different European and Italian artists.
