Although well past its peak militarily and economically, Venice in the eighteenth century remained Europe’s splendid playground. Accounts of foreign travelers describe operas, gambling, and courtesans in the spectacular setting of the lagoon city. Native sons of Venice, however, namely the painter Canaletto and the bon vivant Casanova, offer something even better: an insider’s view. A reception will follow in Kim Gallery.
