The art of Paolo Veronese (1528 – 1588) returns to his native city with an exhibition promoted and organised by the Verona City Council, together with the University of Verona and the Historical, Artistic and Ethno-Anthropological Heritage Office for the provinces of Verona, Rovigo and Vicenza, in association with the National Gallery in London.
Mounted in Verona’s Palazzo della Gran Guardia from 5 July to 5 October 2014, this exhibition has been curated by Paola Marini, director of the Castelvecchio Museum, and Bernard Aikema from the University of Verona.
It will feature about 100 works, comprising both paintings and drawings, originating from prestigious Italian and international museums.
On the occasion a comprehensive restoration work on the large canvas by the Haered Pauli (Paolo’s heirs) titled The Feast in the House of Levi, belonging to the Gallerie dell’Accademia in Venice and entrusted to the Verona City Council, has been carried out by the restorer Barbara Ferriani.
The exhibition catalogue has been published by Electa.
