Item description for Veronese (Chaucer Library of Art S.) (Chaucer Library of Art S.) by Richard Cocke...
Veronese's paintings have enjoyed great popularity up to the present day, with a reputation for exquisite technical skill reflected in intricately detailed depictions of dress patterns and the human body. But critics have long neglected the subtler aspect of Veronese's work, a virtuosity as storyteller that inspired many of his religious paintings with great narrative force. This comprehensive study of Veronese examines every stage in his career, from the first major fresco cycles at the church of St Sebastiano in Venice and the decorations at the Villa Maser through to his last work at the Doge's Palace, and highlights the wealth of motifs and techniques that were to be of formative importance to the Pre-Raphaelites. With more than 60 colour plates and detailed notes on all reproductions, Veronese is the essential introduction to a painter of seminal importance to the development of Italian art in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
