A magnificent survey of the work of Paolo Veronese (1528-1588), one of the most prolific and successful painters of the Italian late Renaissance.
Together with Titian and Tintoretto, he is considered to be the greatest artist in Venice of the 16th century. Veronese especially gained a reputation for his dignified depictions of classical elegance and grandeur. Known for his enormous feast scenes, frescoes and ceiling paintings, Veronese refined the use of bright colour to enhance his illusionistic effects: he has even been called the greatest colourist who ever lived. In Venice, Veronese's mural and ceiling decorations for the Church of San Sebastiano, the Doge's Palace and the Marciana Library earned him early acclaim.
