Ca’ Pesaro museum

Museum of Oriental Art and Gallery of Modern Art

┬áCa’ Pesaro museum in Venice was founded in 1897, as the city’s collection of modern art (in the year of the second edition of the Biennale of Art); since 1902, its permanent site became palazzo Ca’ Pesaro, designed by Longhena (but completed by Gaspari) in 1659 for the noble Pesaro family.
Ca’ Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art displays artworks by masters of XIX and XX century such ad Chagall, Klimt, Kandinsky, Matisse and Klee. Some of the rooms are dedicated to Italian and Venetian modern art.
Since 1928, the same building also houses the Museum of Oriental Art in Venice, born as a private collection at the end of XIX century and made up of pieces of art and various objects from the Far East, especially from Japan.
