The National Gallery becomes a small corner of historic Italy with the new exhibition Veronese: Magnificence in Renaissance Venice.
Described as one of the most significant, influential and beautiful painters of the Venetian Renaissance, Paolo Veronese created works that ranged from complex fresco decorations of villas to small allegorical and historic pictures.
The National Gallery owns ten of his great works and have combined these with others on loan from European and American museums to form a collection of 50 magnificent paintings. Highlights of the show include visions such as The Family of Darius before Alexander and the Allegories of Love, a series of four paintings which each concentrate on a specific aspect. One of the most collected and sought after artists of the 17th and 18th Centuries, this is a rare chance to experience such a wide range of his stunning work.
