Ca'Pesaro, Venice's museum of Modern Art

Updated: Feb 7, 2023

This afternoon we were in the fantastic space of the Pesaro family mansion on the Grand Canal, built in the 17th century, designed by Baldassare Longhena, and finally sold by the Pesaro family in the 19th century, and given to the Venetian state by Countess Bevilacqua in 1890, it now holds an extraordinary collection of modern art, largely purchased by Venice from the Biennales, from 1901 (Rodin) to the 1950's.

Most of the amazing pieces are on loan, so no Kandinsky, Arp, Pollock, Tanguy on view, but Boccione (in his Divisionist phase), Severino, di Chirico and then Warhol...a nice, chilled way to end our first week in Venice
