Veronese was one of the greatest Venetian painters of the late Renaissance, renowned for his exceptional use of colour and for his mastery of illusionistic decorations. His major works are full of majestic architectural settings, theatrical spectacle and glittering pageantry.

On this course you'll explore the art of Veronese and the Venetian artistic tradition, and hear from expert tutors from the National Gallery and the V&A. The course also investigates the architecture and interiors of the period, and examines the fashions, ceremonies and individuals associated with high-society Venice.

Please note on the 15 and 22 May, the course will be in the Hochhauser Auditorium at the V&A Museum [External link].
