Renowned today as a seducer and an adventurer, Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798) was known to his contemporaries as a charming and witty conversationalist, an expert on many topics, and an international man of letters. He was also a gambler, a spy, and one of history s greatest travelers. Casanova will bring the famed author s world to life through approximately 90 period works including paintings, sculptures, furnishings, and costumes. Thematic threads running through the exhibition include travel; courtship and seduction; theater and identity; and the pleasures of dining.
