Summary
"Paolo Veronese was one of the greatest artists of the cinquecento in Venice. His combination of innovation and tradition captured the character and sense of pride of social and political life in the Veneto. His religious paintings, often conceived on a huge scale and intended for public display, played an active part in the religious life of that city - at times a provocative one - bringing the artist into conflict with the Inquisition." "With 117 illustrations (26 in colour), the book sets Veronese's religious work in context. In particular, the author explores Veronese's mastery of narrative and the new expressiveness of his last works painted at a time when the Venetian churches were commissioning large-scale work to renew their decorative schemes, and the decoration of the city's palaces set a new pattern of lavish display." "Despite his towering reputation, there have been few books in English on Veronese. The culmination of years of research on the artist by Richard Cocke, the leading authority on Veronese in the English-speaking world, Paolo Veronese offers the most ready avenue to understanding Veronese's work, both secular and religious."--Jacket
