All members are invited to join us for exclusive access to Casanova before it opens to the public. Explore 18th-century Europe through the eyes of one of its most colorful characters, Giacomo Casanova (Italian, 1725-1798). Known today as a seducer and an adventurer, Casanova was familiar to his contemporaries as a charming and witty conversationalist, an expert on many topics, and an international man of letters. He was also a gambler, a spy, and one of history’s greatest travelers.
Featuring approximately 90 works—including paintings by Canaletto, Pietro Longhi, William Hogarth, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, and François Boucher; sculptures by Jean-Antoine Houdon; works on paper by Giovanni Battista Piranesi; period furnishings, delicate porcelains, silver, and period costumes—Casanova sets the scene to bring the famed author’s world to life.
