Fifty paintings, textiles and decorative art pieces in a style that has become known as the Italian Renaissance will be on display at the Denver Art Museum in April.
“City of Splendor: A Journey Through Renaissance Italy” will be created from pieces in the museum’s collection and select loans will be used to “transport our visitors to Renaissance Italy, where cities such as Florence, Venice and Milan played a major role in the development of a new artistic style,” said Angelica Daneo, an associate curator, in a news release.
