Tintoretto Trail, Venice

Venice
Italy
Concierge.com's insider take:

Jacopo Robusti (c. 1518–94)—better known as Tintoretto—spent most of his artistic life with a major chip on his shoulder. Until his contemporary Titian died of plague when Tintoretto was 58, he had to content himself with being labeled Venice's second-best painter. This might partially explain the sheer "look-at-me" acreage of paint he applied (with help from his workshop of two sons and a daughter) around his home city. But whatever his creative motivations, there's no denying the drama and dynamism of Tintoretto's works. Swirling motion and a striking use of color infuse his vast canvases, like The Triumph of Venice and Paradiso, in the Doge's Palace; The Last Judgment and The Israelites at Mount Sinai, in the Cannaregio church of the Madonna dell'Orto; and his masterpiece, the cycle that adorns the upper floor of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco (and that took him 24 years to complete). Second best? You be the judge.
