Veronese: Magnificence in Renaissance Venice
19 March 2014 - 15 June 2014
Among the leading artists of the Venetian Renaissance, Paolo Veronese will be celebrated in a new retrospective at the National Gallery.
Renowned for his abilities with colour and his dense, highly detailed compositions, Veronese was influenced heavily by forebears like Tintoretto and Titian. In addition to 10 paintings already in the National Gallery’s collection, this exhibition will incorporate roughly 40 other works leant by galleries across the world. Some of the masterpieces on display will be his Allegories of Love series, as well as The Family of Darius before Alexander and The Martyrdom of St George, on loan from Verona (the artist’s hometown) and regarded by the exhibition’s curators as one of the world’s finest paintings.
