In 1548, a young Tintoretto (he hadn’t yet turned 30) burst onto Venice’s artistic scene with his amazing The Miracle of the Slave (also known as The Miracle of Saint Mark) for the Scuola Grande di San Marco. Experimenting with bold compositional and stylistic forms, the painter conquered the most prestigious spaces and stages, such as the Scuole and the Venetian Republic’s official reception rooms. This hall offers a comparison between two other important figures from the same period: Pordenone, whose expressive language had a huge impact on Tintoretto, and Titian, the foremost figure in the Venetian art scene until his death in 1576.
