Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Conceived and organized by Dr. Virginia Brilliant, the Ringling Museumâ€™s Curator of European Art, in cooperation with Frederick Ilchman, Curator of Paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the exhibition highlights Veroneseâ€™s artistic process and his rich and varied artistic production.
Â Â Â Â Â Â â€œVeronese isÂ broadly represented in American collections, in contrast with contemporary Venetian painters like Tintoretto and Titian, and thus the exhibition ably surveys his
career and oeuvre,â€Â said Virginia Brilliant
, the exhibitionâ€™s lead curator. â€œYet Veronese is often dismissed as a merely decorative painter, more elegant and â€˜happierâ€™ than Titian or Tintoretto.
Â Â Â An illustrated catalogue published by Scala Publishers Ltd., accompanies the show, featuring scholarly yet accessible perspectives on the artist from more than ten contributors, including Dr. Virginia Brilliant, Curator of European Art at the Ringling, Frederick Ilchman, Curator of Paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and David Rosand, Meyer Shapiro Professor of Art History Emeritus at Columbia University, among others.
