The Prince of Painters & the Dyer's Son: Titian & Tintoretto at the Frari and San Rocco

  • Titian and Tintoretto are two of the most acclaimed painters of the High Renaissance. Their contrasting pictorial styles represent the twin strains in the Venetian character: Titian answers its craving for sensuous richness and Tintoretto its taste for mystical fantasy.
  • On this tour of Santa Maria dei Frari and the Scuola Grande di San Rocco you will learn about these painters' most compelling works. The Franciscan basilica of Santa Maria dei Frari was rebuilt in the Gothic style in 1330. It later became a kind of "Pantheon" where famous citizens of the Republic were buried including Titian, the Neo-Classical sculptor, Antonio Canova, and numerous Venetian doges. The Frari also houses two of Titian's greatest masterpieces: the revolutionary "Assumption of the Virgin," painted in 1518 for the high altar in a dazzling display of almost operatic intensity, and the astonishingly realistic "Madonna of Ca' Pesaro" of 1526.
  • The tour continues next door at the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, one of the six great Venetian scuole, or confraternities. This wealthy charitable institution was dedicated to St. Roch following a devastating late 15th century outbreak of the plague. It is a veritable museum of Jacopo Robusti, better known as Tintoretto, whose father dyed cloth for a living. A member of the confraternity himself, Tintoretto painted over 60 Biblical scenes on canvas to create what many critics consider to be Venice's Sistine Chapel. In these paintings, the organization's mission to tend the sick and feed the poor is rendered with keenly observed naturalism.
