NOMA is organizing A Life of Seduction: Venice in the 1700s in cooperation with Contemporanea Progetti in Florence, Italy. This exhibition celebrates the theater and spectacle of Venice-in public and private life-in paintings, costumes, furnishings, glass, and ceremonial regalia.
Renowned for its beauty and singularity, Venice played a central role in the history of Western art. In the 18th century, the city experienced a revival in the arts and was the premier destination for intellectuals and travelers. The city and its inhabitants cultivated and eulogized a tradition of street life, festivals, and fashion.

The works in the exhibition are drawn primarily from Venetian and other Italian collections, with important additions from American institutions. Five extraordinary paintings, never before seen in the United States, introduce the themes of the exhibition. Recently attributed to Joseph Heintz the Younger (1600-1678), these detailed works illuminate the richness of Venetian culture and society, providing insight into the public life of Venetians, and intimate views of political and aristocratic life.


NOMA also is partnering with Contemporanea Progetti to produce a noteworthy publication to accompany this exhibition. This publication will include a scholarly essay by NOMA's Senior Research Curator for European Art Vanessa Schmid on the exceptional series of paintings by Joseph Heintz the Younger.
