Item description for Veronese: Gods, Heroes, and Allegories by Giandomenico Romanelli, Giandomenico Romanelli & Claudio Strinati...

Paolo Caliari-better known as Veronese-is the "profane" painter par excellence. Veronese gave expression to a secular and progressive vision that brought him into direct collision with the Church hierarchy, prefiguring the collision of the academy and modern art. This catalog brings together a series of paintings by the 16th-century Italian artist emphasizing the spectacular in Veronese's work which in turn reveals multiple facets of Venetian life.
This sumptuous catalogue from the Muse du Luxembourg exhibition aims to underline the profane aspect of the artist, leaving aside religious works and altarpieces. His paintings of Biblical subjects are not actually excluded, for Veronese approached Holy Scripture and mythology in the same spirit, bringing out the emotional aspects of the Bible rather than the symbolic and didactic as other Venetian artists of his time did.
In this richly illustrated volume, Veronese can be seen as the quintessence of the classicism that exalted drawing and color, magnificence and quality, that aimed to organize the episodes from mythology and the Bible in a grandiose manner, and to bring out the profound self-awareness of the subjects of his portraits.

Reviews - What do customers think about Veronese: Gods, Heroes, and Allegories?

On the Veronese   Jul 17, 2007
This art book of Veronese is very beautiful, and the price is reasonble. I enjoy many pictures with intelligible description of his life and work.
BIG Disappointment  Jun 11, 2007
This book is a tremendous disappointment. The Veronese works featured in this book are based on a Musee de Luxembourg exhibition. The paintings featured in the exhibition were secondary works that do not reflect the great artist's mastery of color and form. Many of the works featured in the show demonstrate Veronese's debt to Titian, Tintoretto and Parmigianino, but reflect little of the artist's innate brilliance. The text accompanying the artworks provides little insight into the works' creation or provenance. Unless the purchaser is an ardent devotee of Veronese or an art historian, I strongly advise against purchasing this work.
