This exhibition, focusing on the three main themes that distinguish Tintoretto's work: religion, mythology and portraiture, is strictly monographic and will be divided into sections comprising a handful of carefully selected and unquestioned masterpieces, beginning and ending with his two self-portraits of himself as a young man, from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and as an old man, from the Louvre.
The first section, on the first floor of the Scuderie del Quirinale, will be devoted to religious themes (which played such a major role in Tintoretto's artistic output), opening with one of his first acknowledged works, Jesus Among the Doctors (1542) lent by the Milan Cathedral's Diocesan Museum, and ending with the The Deposition (1594) from the Monastry of San Giorgio Maggiore, possibly the last work in which it is possible to identify the hand of the master. In between, the exhibition will include such important works as the Madonna of the Treasurers and the Stealing of the Dead Body of St. Mark, both from the Gallerie dell'Accademia, the St Mary of Egypt and the St Mary Magdalen, from the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, and the unprecedented and spectacular juxtaposition of the Last Supper from the Venetian church of San Trovaso and another version of the same subject painted five years later, from the church of San Polo, to celebrate one of the Scuole del Sacramento's favorite themes.
The second floor will house the other two sections of the exhibition, starting with the section devoted to portraits. Even though he was in competition with Titian, his contemporaries yet recognized his "utterly exquisite eye in portraiture". Some of his most famous portraits from leading international collections will be on display in this section.
