The anniversary will be celebrated in 2019 with an unprecedented exhibition at the National Gallery of Washington, the first ever to be held abroad. The celebrations will include comparisons with Titian and other Venetian artists, and collateral events at churches and Venice's Scuole Grandi, to disseminate the awareness of his art across the city.
