Veronese’s paintings are magnificent visions of opulence, spectacle and colour. Having once adorned churches, palaces, villas and public buildings throughout the Veneto region, they are inseparable from our vision of Renaissance Venice.
The exhibition is a visual feast of around 50 of these works. It marks the most significant collection of masterpieces by the artist ever to be displayed in the UK, with some major loans travelling to London from across the globe.
Watch this YouTube video with The National Gallery’s director, Nicholas Penny, introducing us to Paolo Veronese’s masterpiece ‘The Adoration of the Kings’.
Nicholas Penny gives a taste of what to expect in the exhibition by exploring Veronese’s masterful use of light, colour and intricate depiction of people.
