Paolo Veronese and Padua. The artist, his patrons and his fortune

Padova talks about its relationship with Paolo Veronese

From 07 September 2014 to 11 January 2015


After Verona and Vicenza, the exhibition in Padova 2014 also pays homage to the great master Paolo Veronese: 'Paolo Veronese in Padua. The artist, his patrons and his fortune' investigates the relationship and influence of Paolo Caliari in the city of Padua from the mid 16th century at the Museo Eremitani in Padova.

Hosted by the Eremitani Civic Museum of Padua from 7 September 2014 to 11 January 2015, the exhibition of Padua Veronese in Padua 2014 will bring together the majority of the works made by the artist for his patrons in Padua and works of artists who took inspiration from his unmistakable style.

The great Eremitani Padua exhibition is included in 'Discover Veneto and Veronese', a fascinating project that involves the entire region in five exhibitions and 32 itineraries to discover the masterpieces of Paolo Veronese in Padova and Veneto.

The Paolo Veronese exhibition in Padova is housed in the rooms used for temporary exhibitions. The exhibition of Paolo Veronese in Padua in 2014 will offer a fascinating journey dedicated to the art of the master and to the contributions of his large following in the city of Padua. The connexions of Paolo Veronese with Padua have been documented since the middle of the 1500s, when the artist began the production of many works for clients from Padua, mostly members of religious orders.

The innovative style of the master, with his use of bright colours, elaborate architecture and characters in sumptuous costumes, was immediately very successful in Padua, becoming an example for contemporary and succeeding artists engaged in the creation of new artistic languages based on colour and formal structures.

The exhibition of Veronese of Padua, at the Civic Museums will also present numerous works of the artists who followed in his footsteps: his sons Gabriele and Carletto and brother Benedict, Giovan Battista Zelotti, Dario Varotari who bequeathed the artist's message until the end of the 16th century, Giovanni Battista Bissoni and Pietro Damini who had to adapt that to the new impositions derived from the Counter-Reformation, Girolamo Pellegrini, Valentin Lèfevre, Giovanni Antonio Fumiani and Sebastiano Ricci that took him as their guide for the emergence and spread of the Rococò.

A major exhibition dedicated to one of the most important painters of the Italian Renaissance, Paolo Caliari, called Veronese at the Eremitani Museum in Padova. A unique opportunity to follow the evolution and spread of the language of Paolo Veronese and his large following in Padova at Eremitani.

After the visit to the Eremitani Museum in Padua - times 9am -7pm, closed on Mondays, 25 and 26/12, 1/1 - if you want to see other works by Paolo Veronese, the exhibition in Padua continues in a 'virtual' way with the other itineraries of the project 'Discover Veneto and Veronese'.
