Venetian artist at the Ringling

The Ringling Museum is set to open an exhibit of Paolo Veronese's work.
Paolo Veronese (1528–1588) was one of the giants of Venetian Renaissance painting. Though perhaps best known for his grand ceiling paintings and large Biblical feast scenes, Veronese and his workshop created altarpieces and smaller religious paintings for private devotion or collectors, as well as portraits, depictions of sensual narratives drawn from the classical tradition, and allegories glorifying the Venetian state. Veronese was also an outstanding draughtsman.

The exhibition Paolo Veronese: A Master and His Workshop in Renaissance Venice presents some of the artist’s finest paintings and drawings now in North American museums and private collections, as well as a selection of prints after important works.
The exhibit will run from Dec. 7, 2012 to April 14, 2013. Some distinguished scholars and lecturers will be coming - schedule here.
