The Ca' Pesaro is located in the Santa Croce district - Venice.
The beautiful palace of Ca' Pesaro overlooking the suggestive Grand Canal, hosts at the first and the second floor the International Gallery of Modern Art with Italian and foreign masterpieces of the 19th and 20th century, while at the third floor is located the Museum of Oriental Art.
The palace, wanted by the wealthy Pesaro family, it was designed and started in the second half of the 17th century by the architect Baldassarre Longhena, and at his death, was continued and completed in 1710 by Gian Antonio Gaspari.
Splendid example of Venetian Baroque, it shows features of the Sansovino's classicism with chiaroscuro effects, rigor and majesty, as well as some remains of the splendid fresco and oil decorations of the ceilings; unfortunately the collections of the Pesaro family, once much more significant, went missing before the death of the last member of the family, who sold many goods at auction in London.
So the palace passed to the Gradenigo family, then it was used as a college, and finally it became property of the Duchess Felicita Bevilacqua La Masa who in her will assigned it to the Municipality of Venice; so in 1902 the Ca' Pesaro was designated as the permanent seat of the International Gallery of Modern Art whose collection has been enriched over the years.

This curated small gallery of modern (1850-1960) mostly Italian artists was completely empty. We were able to experience the art with no distractions and it was simply amazing. Everything from Italian cubists to the Thinker by Rodin, such a great gallery. Highly recommend!

Really nice mix of art, some contemporary works seated next to some classics. Each room offered explanation cards and had a strong theme that put each piece into context. Very enjoyable visit

We fell in love with this museum on the Canal Grande. The collection on display may not be the largest, the paintings and sculptures shown are great. Many works are by Italian artists but you will also find scupltures of Rodin here (including a plaster copy of The Thinker) and a masterpiece by Klimt (Judith). Upstairs, on the third floor,...

Much as we can enjoy the classical and baroque art on wide display in Venice, we found Ca'Pesaro a refreshing and surprising counterpoint. There are a lot of good pieces and we felt the collection to be superior in quality and range to the otherwise charming Peggy Guggenheim gallery. Go see!

We had every intention of going into this art gallery on our last morning in Venice. Our teenage boys had previously enjoyed the Guggenheim, so we thought this would be a good way to fill a couple of hours before getting our bus to the airport. As it turns out, we arrived at opening time after walking for an hour...

If you like modern art then you should make time to visit Ca Pesaro. The Burghers of Calais by Rodin loom before you as you walk in and paintings by Klimt among others are not to be missed. Make sore you spend a minute or two looking up at the ceilings too.

Some modern art housed in a stunning palazzo. A really interesting collection including Kandinskji, Klimt, Ben Nicholson and some stunning Rhodin sculpture. We found it a refreshing change from all the Renaissance art! It was very quiet when we visited.

The collection of artefacts from Japan was fascinating and impressive. The art and sculpture collections were in the most cases interesting, but some seemed to be made to make you scratch you head and wonder... like a large sheet of plastic with one million and one holes punched into it!

If you like modern art, such as shapeless piles of metal, then this is for you. If not there are still some things of interest. We had an 11-museum ticket so made a point of going - otherwise would have probably missed it out.

A fabulous selection of modern art which almost rivalled the Guggenheim not that easy to find but well worth it when you do!
