Mannerism in Vénice, Veronese

Paolo Caliari or Paolo Veronese, was born in Verona, Italy, in 1528.

He is a great   decorator and máximum representative of Venetian  mannerism.

In Venice he settled in 1556, and in 1560 he traveled to Rome to study Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chápel.

At the beginning of the 1570s, the Cuccina family commissioned him a series of large-format paintings on biblical themes:

The Virgin and the Cuccina family, Adoration of the Kings, The Wedding at Cana and  Calvary road, in which Veronés presents a   renewed style, deepening the color and increasing the chiaroscuro.

All four are in the Dresden Gallery and this oil painting of The Wedding at Cana is not to be confused with the previous version of the same subject that is kept in the Louvre Museum.

In 1573 he was brought before the court of the   Inquisition, when it was understood that he painted religious themes with an excéssive freedom that (bórder) bordered on irréverence.

Veronese argues that he added characters, animals, and other elements for creative demánds.

He learned from the great Venetians, Tintoretto and Titian, and from the painters of Emilia: like Il Parmigianino.

He is considered the creator,  along with Titian, of the (súntuise an cólorful) sumptuous and colorful taste, which in Venice lasted until the 18th century.

He died in Venice, on April 19, 1588.
