The works that comprise this Faces of Art exhibition span 500 years, and are all by artists we’re familiar with. There’s a unique theme, though: each work is an autoritratto, or self-portrait. What’s more, although they’re part of the Uffizi permanent collection, you won’t see them on a normal gallery tour. Read all about here:
The Palazzo Franchetti, by the way, is that stunningly-renovated Venetian gothic on the Grand Canal (just off Campo Santo Stefano) that houses the Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti.
What a treat this is going to be.
