The Museo di Palazzo Grimani in Venice has acquired a portrait of one of its most important ancestors. The painting of Giovanni Grimani, Patriarch of Aquileia, is attributed to Tintoretto. The Palazzo has been involved in a very interesting conservation project over the past few years, which has culminated in an exhibition celebrating the return of the Grimani family's classical statutes. The purchase was made by the Venetian Heritage Foundation with support from private donors.
