Washington celebrates the genius of Jacopo Tintoretto with a series of major events related to the Venetian artist following the events dedicated to him in Venice in 2018. The National Gallery of Art, one of the most important museum institutions in the United States that boasts a unique collaboration with all major Italian institutions, will present three exhibitions on Jacopo Tintoretto (1518 / 1519–1594). The exhibitions, organized on the five hundredth anniversary of the birth of the artist, will be presented to the Italian and American press and then open to the public on March 24th.

The first exhibition, titled "Tintoretto: artist of Renaissance Venice" and organized in collaboration with the Fondazione Musei Civici and the Gallerie dell’Accademia of Venice, is the first retrospective of the artist in North America. It will host about 50 paintings and more than a dozen of works on paper, including many major international loans traveling to the United States for the first time. It is flanked by two exhibitions titled "Drawing in Tintoretto's Venice" - from the Morgan Library & Museum of New York - and "Venetian Prints in the Time of Tintoretto".
