This interesting exhibition on Vittore Carpaccio in Conegliano Veneto Palazzo Sarcinelli boasts more than 50 works of art (altarpieces, paintings, drawings and prints), some of which are of singular beauty, such as Vittore Carpaccio's 'St. George and the dragon', the famous table painted in tempera by Vittore Carpaccio in 1502 and preserved in Venice in the Scuola of San Giorgio degli Schiavoni. The exhibition at Conegliano in Palazzo Sarcinelli, 2015, investigates the figure of the son of Vittore, Benedict, who continued the work of his father and, through the use of bright multicolours, introduced a very personal and sacred theatrical concept, as demonstrated by the numerous paintings in this exhibition on Vittore Carpaccio.

The time period covered by the Carpaccio Vittore exhibition goes from the late 15th to the early 16th century, a time when the world was in full swing due to conflicts, changes of alliances, political crises, heresies , inquisitions and religious conflict. Carpaccio the painter was completely overwhelmed by these events, as shown by his works, and prepared himself to face the new century by crossing the borders of Italy to test and refine new techniques of painting, as was done by other young protagonists of the art scene such as Titian, Giorgione, Lotto and Sebastiano del Piombo.

Among the exhibitions at the Palazzo Sarcinelli in Conegliano Veneto mostre in 2015, Carpaccio Vittore e Benedetto da venezia all'istria is definitely one of the most interesting ever organized as it follows Carpaccio Vittore in his travels between the northern borders of the Republic and the lively area of Istria, looking for a surprising and innovative artistic language. This opens a season full of excellent original works, such as' The Altarpiece of Pozzale di Cadore',' The Meeting of Joachim and Anne ' for St Francesco of Treviso, 'The triptych of Santa Fosca', 'The Franciscan Pala of Piran', 'The Portelle of the organ of the Cathedral of Koper' and the unique entrance of the Contarini Palace in Koper, which allows the viewer an innovative and realistic look of the city.

After the death of Vittore Carpaccio, his work was continued by his workshop, with realizations of works clearly inspired by the great master or with re-elaborations of some of his paintings, and the affirmation of his son Benedict who, thanks to his creations characterized by naive cadences and bright colours, established himself in the Istrian territory and became the main executor of the progressive change of the Carpaccio style.

In Conegliano, the exhibition 'Carpaccio. Vittore e Benedetto da Venezia all'Istria' at the Conegliano Palazzo Sarcinelli mostre in 2105, represents the second stage of an interesting journey that began with the exhibition' A restless 16th century, from Cima da Conegliano to the the burning of Richard Perucolo', further highlighting the importance of the relationship between the works of art on display and the rich repertoire of materials and traces of art in the area.
