Ca’ Pesaro is the International Gallery of Modern Art in Venice. It houses a collection of nineteen and twentieth century paintings and sculptures.
The grandiose palace, now seat of the Gallery, was built in the second half of the seventeenth century for the Pesaro family, a project by the greatest Venetian baroque architect, Baldassarre Longhena, who also designed the church of the Salute and Ca’ Rezzonico.
Ca’ Pesaro contains important 19th- and 20th-century collections of paintings and sculptures, including masterpieces by Gustav Klimt and Auguste Rodin and remarkable works by artists such as Medardo Rosso, Adolfo Wildt and Giacomo Balla, as well as a rich selection of works by other Italian artists and an important section on graphic art. Its layout has been completely redesigned, providing an enlightening introduction to a crucial period in Art History. A narrative but also evocative itinerary offering the museum’s public a dynamic and transverse vision of the entire collection, offering links, dialogues and new views of the 20th century.
The common thread running throughout the itinerary of the new layout is Venetian taste for 20th-century art; an itinerary that has expanded thanks to a new policy of long-term loans of some extremely important works.
