  Gallerie Dell'Accademia
by Zvrlj

[?] After the glorious 16th century, the 17th produced a decline, and therefore the 17th century collection of paintings of the Accademia Galleries is neither numerous nor impressive. Some of the exhibited paintings created in the 17th century are "Melancholy" by Domenico Feti, "Apollo and Marsyas" by German painter Johann Liss, "Crucifixion" by painter and printmaker Giulio Carpioni, "Banquet at the House of Simon" by Bernardo Strozzi, "Annunciation" by painter, poet, and architect Sebastiano Mazzoni, "Crucifixion of St Peter" by Luca Giordano?

The 18th century was the last century of Venice independence ? Napoleon conquered Venice in 1797 and ended the fascinating century of its history ? Venice was, during the Settecento, perhaps the most refined and glamorous city in Europe. Giovanni Baptista Tiepolo was the last important Venetian figure painter and one of the greatest decorative artists of the Rococo. Many of his paintings can be seen in churches and palaces of Venice. Among his works in the Accademia Galleries are "Apollo and Marsyas", "The Rape of Europa" and brilliant tondo "Discovery of the True Cross".
