They were the leading artists in Venice in the late 16th century. However, Veronese and Tintoretto continually competed with each other and were rivals for the same commissions.  Gayna Pelham will explore how this adversarial and sometimes tempestuous relationship shaped their art and the art of artists around them.

Focus in on one painting with our talks in the Gallery, or explore wider themes in the collection at our in-depth theatre talks.
