Paolo Veronese's sumptuous paintings often depict a riot of colour and incident happening alongside the main action of the painting. This talk examines some of this theatrical "staging" of his work and the trial he had to undergo as a result of it.

Lunchtime talks

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