Paolo Veronese

$ 2.99

One of the principle painters of the sixteenth century Venetian school, Paolo Veronese produced monumental works, portraying allegorical, biblical and historical subjects in splendid colour, set against the backdrop of Renaissance architecture. A master of colour, Veronese also excelled at illusionary compositions that extend the eye beyond the actual confines of the room. After an early period of Mannerism, he developed a naturalist style of painting, which was influenced by Titian and would go on to inspire the masters of the Baroque and later eras. His works are celebrated for their chromatic brilliance, sensibility of brushwork, aristocratic elegance and the sheer magnificence of spectacle. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Veronese’s complete paintings in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
