In addition to his political and military callings, Napoléon I had an appetite for beautiful things. He showered his wives, his lovers and his family with lavish gifts commissioned from the grand luxury manufactories of France, which he also employed to furnish his many royal palaces. The Eye of Napoléon features the art that figured prominently in the life of the charismatic ruler: paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, books, jewelry and decorative arts. Through these objects, The Eye of Napoléon ties us to the times and tastes of Napoléon, who shaped the style of an era, commonly known as the Empire Style. Click here to view exhibition brochure.

Giambattista Piranesi (1720 - 1778) was a key figure in the formation of 18th century taste and style, yet his work defies categories of style and technique. the Arts of Piranesi, which opened in Venice in 2010 to rave reviews, is an innovative interactive exhibition that highlights the diverse artistic skills and the influential role of this eclectic visionary artist. Designed by world-renowned architect Michele de Lucchi, the exhibition includes more than 300 original etchings from the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice, Italy. Central are objects recreated from Piranesi’s original designs using the most advanced digital technologies and 3D printing. Click here to view exhibition brochure.

Produced by the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice, Italy, and Factum-Arte, Madrid, Spain



the Arts of Piranesi is enjoying a ten-month run at Caixa Forum in Barcelona, Spain, having previously been on view at Caixa Forum, Madrid, Spain and the Cini Foundation in Venice, Italy. 

Writing for The New York Times (October 20, 2010), Roderick Conway Morris spoke about the exhibition in Venice.  “Piranesi,” he said, “pushed etching and engraving to unsurpassed limits, transforming them from what had been predominantly tools of illustration and reproduction into expressive art forms on a par with painting and sculpture.”

Morris cited engraving as “the primary means of expression in all his [Piranesi’s] endeavors as an architect, designer, archeologist, topographical artist and polemicist, as is compellingly demonstrated by “The Arts of Piranesi” at the Cini Foundation [in Venice].”

the Arts of Piranesi will begin its North American tour at the San Diego Museum of Art, on March 28, 2013 and will be on view through July 7, 2013.
