"Paolo Veronese (1528-1588) is recognized as one of the giants of Venetian Renaissance painting. His artistic production was richly varied, extending from imposing altarpieces to smaller religious paintings for private clients, from grand portraits to sensual episodes drawn from the classical tradition. He was also an outstanding draughtsman, and his graphic oeuvre randed from preliminary sketches to highly finished chiaroscuro sheets. Produced to accompany an exhibition celebrating the artist at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, this magnificently illustrated book displays Veronese's extraordinary versatility and examines his artistic practice, concentrating on works from American and Canadian museums and private collections. For a sixteenth-century painter, many of whose works are in fresco or on enormous canvases still in situ, Veronese is unusually well represented in North America. At the same time, the broad spectrum of Veronese as a painter and draughtsman has not been available to American audiences in over two decades. This publication, with contributions by an international team of experts and focusing attention on little-known works as well as acknowledged masterpieces, constitutes a major contribution to Veronese studies."--jacket.
