Tintoretto – A Rebel in Venice is a documentary that tells the story of the painter Jacopo Robusti (1519–1594), known as Tintoretto. He was in fact the only great Renaissance painter never to leave Venice, not even during the years of the plague. Tintoretto is in almost every museum in the world. And yet it is only in Venice that one can understand and love him. The documentary will closely observe the thorough, complex analysis carried out by an Italian team of experts in order to restore two of Tintoretto's mas­terpieces: „Mary in meditation“ (1582 – 1583) and „Mary reading“ (1582 – 1583). These two canvases have been restored to be exhibited as part of the monographic exhibition on Tintoretto taking place at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of his birth, in 2019.
