The exhibition, held in the Apartments of the Doge’s Palace, boasts over 100 works from leading international institutions: 40 masterpieces by Rousseau himself and 60 works for the purposes of comparison).

The exhibition is realized with the scientific collaboration and exceptional loans from the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée de l’Orangerie, Paris, and under the patronage of the Soprintendenza per i Beni Architettonici e Paesaggistici di Venezia e Laguna.
