Painters of Passion 

Continuing the de Young’s recent series of strong “loaner exhibits” from overseas, the museum showcases works from Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum – the gilded palace that houses some of Europe’s most impressive art. A Who’s Who of Renaissance painters from the 15th and 16th centuries anchor this fall exhibit, with Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese the ones who should inspire the most oohs and aahs. Titian is represented by “Danae,” his sumptuous interpretation of a woman from Greek mythology, and by “Portrait of Isabella d'Este, Marchioness of Mantua,” which shows the 60-year-old royal looking 30 years younger than she was. All of the paintings in “Masters of Venice: Renaissance Painters of Passion and Power” acome from the Kunsthistorisches’ Gemäldegalerie, or “Picture Gallery.”
Tuesdays-Sundays; Dec. 27-31; Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 29. Continues through Feb. 12, 2011
