Veronese, Magnificence in Renaissance Venice, a talk by Matthias Wivel

ART Talks Series


Veronese, Magnificence in Renaissance Venice, a talk by Matthias Wivel

The exhibition Veronese – Magnificence in Renaissance Venice, which opens at the National Gallery on 19 March, is the first major show devoted to this, one of the great artists of the sixteenth century. It covers the entirety of his career with magnificent loans from important collections in Europe and the United States.
As his nickname indicates, Paolo Caliari (1528-1588), was born in Verona, but spent most of his career in Venice. He defined a new, harmonious and highly sophisticated style of Venetian painting that in many ways encapsulates the grandeur and elegance of Venetian culture.

Matthias Wivel, curator of sixteenth-century Italian painting, will introduce Veronese and the exhibition, focusing on the artist’s approach to form, composition and storytelling.
