 About the exhibit:

Step into the splendor and sophistication of 18th century Europe.  In the dynamic world of 18th-century Europe, people, ideas, and artistic styles crossed national boundaries. Filled with masterful, opulent, and at times playful paintings and furnishings, salons hummed with lively intellectual exchange, witty gossip, and flirtation. To a person like Giacomo Casanova (1725–1798)—smart and confident, boastful and scheming—the possibilities must have seemed limitless.
