Venice & the Museum of the City

Kristin L. Huffman & Ludovica Galeazzo

In collaboration with the Correr Museum in Venice, this research project involves supporting a reinstallation of the permanent collection. We will begin with work developed for A Portrait of Venice, an exhibition hosted at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, September-December 2017. The first phase focuses on Jacopo de’ Barbari’s View of Venice, 1500, and the light laser and photogrammetry scans of the six original wooden blocks housed in the Correr Museum. Study and analysis of captured data may lead to new discoveries regarding the process of making as well as offer insights into the mysteries of this important historical document.
