From 21th March to 01st July 2018,  the two“Presentation at the Temple”, masterpieces in the universal history of art , one of Giovanni Bellini, and the other of Andrea Mantegna are compared in the exhibition proposed by Fondazione Querini Stampalia curated by Brigit Blass-Simmen, Neville Rowley, Giovanni Carlo Federico Villa,  and Mario Botta.

The views of critics about when the two works were painted do not concur, but it seems impossible to imagine that a long period of time separated their respective execution, as had been initially suggested, also by virtue of the diverse opinions regarding the precedence of the conception. It would be illuminating perhaps to discover the reasons that led to their execution, which do not appear to be a matter of chance, but almost certainly linked to family events, which with this important family portrait were solemnized.

Not only that, beside these two unreachable “vedettes” contemporary works will be exhibited in the Museum Querini Stampalia. The visitor will be invited, with the same ticket to discover, or rediscover, the countless treasures of the Querini Stampalia, a House Museum is one of the most important in the world. Room after room, in the historic surroundings, you will have the opportunity of getting into one of the most powerful and illustrious Venetian families home: admire the famous works of art, valuable furniture, family heritage  received by the Foundation in 1869, just under 150 years ago.

It’s a world of history, culture, wonders that awaits visitors in the Querini Stampalia Foundation, in a unique atmosphere as is that of the authentic Venice.
