Ca’ d’Oro: Masterpieces of the Renaissance in Venice

Ca'd'Oro: Masterpieces of the Renaissance in Venice, a new exhibition at the Hôtel de la Marine!

For its third temporary exhibition, the Al Thani Collection at the Hôtel de la Marine is hosting a set of exceptional loans from the Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro in Venice, which will be undergoing restoration over the next few months.

Its collections come from the donation of the collection gathered by Baron Giorgio Franchetti (1865-1922), enriched by the Italian State. The exhibition includes masterpieces by several of the greatest artists active in Venice during the Renaissance and its surroundings, including Gentile Bellini, Paris Bordon, Andrea Mantegna, and Andrea Riccio.

What is the Al Thani Collection?

Among the most prestigious private collections in the world, The Al Thani Collection includes an exceptional array of artworks spanning the ancient world to the present day. Encyclopaedic in its approach, and representing a diverse range of cultures and civilisations, the Collection celebrates creativity and the universal power of art through the ages.

The Collection is shared through projects undertaken by The Al Thani Collection Foundation, a non-profit organisation whose core mission is to advance and promote art and culture. This objective is principally delivered through public art initiatives including sponsorships, museum projects, the staging of exhibitions, and academic publications, honouring artistic achievement across a rich diversity of cultures

Prior to the opening of the galleries at the Hôtel de la Marine, the Collection has been shared through temporary exhibitions and loans at museums around the world.

Why is the collection in the Hôtel de la Marine?

The galleries at the Hôtel de la Marine are the result of a long-term agreement between the CMN and The Al Thani Collection Foundation that will see works from the Collection shown over the next 20 years alongside a programme of themed exhibitions.

The Al Thani Collection had previously been shared through temporary exhibitions at major international institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and Tokyo National Museum.
