Ca' Pesaro - International Gallery of Modern Art
Ca' Pesaro - International Gallery of Modern Art in Venice houses 19th-20th century collections of paintings and sculptures.
The grandiose palace, now home to the Gallery, was built in the second half of the 17th century, by the will of the Pesaro family, based on a project by the greatest Venetian Baroque architect, Baldassarre Longhena , who also designed the Salute Church and Ca' Rezzonico.
The permanent collections of the International Gallery of Modern Art , always renewed and enriched with new critical ideas and unusual perspectives, are in constant relationship with the temporary exhibitions hosted in the rooms on the second floor of Ca' Pesaro. Among the masterpieces on display are the famous The Thinker by Auguste Rodin and Judith II (Salomé) by Gustav Klimt together with the works of artists such as Medardo Rosso, Giacomo Balla, Adolfo Wildt, Arturo Martini, Gino Rossi, Giorgio Morandi and Felice Casorati.
After the important arrival of the Chiara and Francesco Carraro Collection in 2017, in February 2019 the collection was enriched by the deposit of an exceptional nucleus of thirty-two works by some of the most important Italian authors of the 20th century: masterpieces by Massimo Campigli, Carlo Carrà , Giacomo Manzù, Ottone Rosai, Scipione and Mario Sironi from known and important collections of Italian art.
