Ca' Pesaro

Rich in history and culture, Ca' Pescaro will have you hooked on its wonders for a wonderful trip to Venice.

by Cat Bauer

With new additions from the Sonnabend and Carraro Collections, and temporary exhibitions like David Hockney, this imposing palace on the Grand Canal keeps reinventing itself. Home to masterpieces of the 19th and 20th centuries by the likes of Chagall, Kandinsky and Klee, the star of the show at the International Gallery of Modern Art is Judith II (Salome) by Gustav Klimt. The Oriental Art Museum is curiously located on the top floor, loaded with Prince Henry, Count of Bardi’s priceless collection of Japanese art from the Edo period.
