W. R. Rearick, with an introductory essay by Terisio Pignatti
No other artist was better able to evoke the visual splendor of 16th-century Venetian life than Paolo Veronese. His work provides a feast for the eyes, conjuring up visions that are stately, luxurious, and ripe with opulent beauty. Veronese’s work still speaks to us of the perennial pleasures associated with Venice’s golden age, and it is little wonder that his paintings and drawings have been eagerly sought by collectors for more than four centuries. This catalog, part of the worldwide celebrations that commemorated the 400th anniversary of his death, and the selection of works reproduced within should remind or perhaps even introduce the reader to a better-rounded view of Veronese’s oeuvre. The exhibition catalog illustrates every aspect of Veronese’s career and demonstrates the evolution of his style.
