Now for the big one. On 19 March The National Gallery in London opens Veronese: Magnificence in Renaissance Venice
, the first monographic exhibition (solo show) of Paolo Veronese's influential and beautiful paintings to be held in the UK. This is High Renaissance, very high. Sadly his ceilings and wall frescos can't travel, but his oil paintings can. Shown as an example is his oil painting Persius and Andromeda
(c. 1575-80). This exhibition was 5 years in the making, with major loans from European and American museums to form a display of about 50 works (CLICK
). The show takes place in the Gallery's Rooms 4-8 and 11-12. Admission is £14 adults, £13 silver surfers. However, on Tuesday afternoons from 2.30 - 6pm silver surfers can gain entrance for only £7.00. View the Gallery's YouTube introduction below.
