Event: Veronese: Magnificence in Renaissance Venice
Location: National Gallery, WC2
Paolo Caliari, known as Veronese, was a stonecutter’s son from Verona who became one of the most sought-after artists in 16th century Venice, his paintings displayed in churches, palaces and public buildings.
The National Gallery’s exhibition, Veronese: Magnificence in Renaissance Venice, the first ever staged in this country on the Venetian master, aims to shine a light on his stunning works of art.
The gallery has managed to borrow paintings from churches and galleries around Europe. These include the altarpiece The Martyrdom of St George lent by a church in Verona, and the Mystic Marriage of Saint Catherine from the Gallerie dell’Accademia in Venice.
The Veronese exhibition is part of the National Gallery’s Renaissance Spring season, which also includes the exhibitions:
The Veronese exhibition is on in the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery from 19th March to 15th June, open daily 10am to 6pm and until 9pm on Fridays. Tickets are available in advance.
