Love in Venice
February 10–August 31, 2017
This exhibition examines the literary, artistic, musical, and cultural aspects of Venice’s seductiveness, including its beautiful courtesans, lavish festivals, lively carnivals, and libertine counterculture through diverse works that range from etchings by Tiepolo and a letter from Lord Byron recounting his amorous conquests, to wedding poetry and pop-up books that reveal the undergarments of Venetian prostitutes.
