Famous for their opulence and brilliance of colour, the paintings of Veronese have come to define the 16th-century Venetian tradition of painting. This talk considers the artist's unique style in relation to his early training in his native city, Verona, and his subsequent development as a painter in Venice after his arrival in 1555. 

It will explore Veronese's response to a broad range of commissions including portraits, religious and mythological paintings, and the interior decoration of Venetian palaces and villas in order to understand how and why he became one of the city's leading artists.

The talk in spoken English will be accompanied by BSL interpretation by Rob Chalk.

BSL events

Throughout the year, free talks are given in British Sign Language by deaf lecturers or in spoken English with BSL interpretation.
