Paintings in the Palazzo Ducale (1580)
by TINTORETTO and workshop

Several paintings by Tintoretto were destroyed by the fires in the Palazzo Ducale in 1574 and 1577. After the fires he received commissions for the Palazzo Ducale for allegories, votive pictures and historical paintings. In order to meet his deadlines, Tintoretto delegated to his workshop many of these paintings. However, the four allegorical paintings now in the Anticollegio were executed by Tintoretto himself: the Three Graces and Mercury, the Minerva Sending Away Mars from Peace and Prosperity, the Ariadne, Venus and Bacchus, and the Forge of Vulcan.

The monumental canvas in Sala del Maggior Consiglio representing the Paradise was executed by Tintoretto's workshop under the supervision of his son, Domenico Robusti.
