Venetian Drawings

The Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford, has opened Titian to Canaletto: Drawing in Venice, in collaboration with the Uffizi in Florence. This "ground breaking" exhibition traces the role of drawing in Venice and its importance over three centuries. More than 100 works have been brought together for this first major exhibition of Venetian drawings in the UK. Shown is Giovanni Battista Piazzetta's Head of a Youth (detail). The young bruiser looks like a boy soldier to me. Tickets cost £10 or £9 silver surfers (CLICK).
