Title: Veronese, Gods, Heroes and Allegories
Description: Skira, 2004. 28 cm, 183 pages, illustrations in colour, hard cover, dust jacket ¶ Published on the occasion of the exhibition in Musée du Luxembourg, Paris - Museo Correr, Venice. In the panorama of sixteenth century Italian art, Veronese is the profane painter par excellence, in that he encapsulates both of the great pictorial traditions that most influenced the history of sixteenth century secular painting: the Tuscan-Roman tradition and the Venetian tradition. From the Roman school Veronese took the preference for mythological and allegorical representation that Giulio Romano, Raphael’s most famous pupil, expressed at Mantua; from the Venetian school he captured the splendour and magnificence of colours that made him a regal artist, whose work aimed to celebrate the joy of life and illustrate the wonders of the world and the beauty of men and women.
