Paolo Veronese

Paolo Veronese

(1528 - 1588)
Born: Verona, Italy
Style: Mannerism
Famous Works:
  • The Marriage of Cana (1563)
  • Christ in the House of Levi (1573)
  • The Finding of Moses (1580)
Paolo Veronese was born and trained in Verona during the late Renaissance. By the age of fourteen, Veronese was apprenticing under Antonio Badile, working in the Mannerist style that defined the period. It was not long before Veronese and his talents outgrew Badile's workshop and Verona itself, and by 1553 the artist was in Venice earning commissions. Paolo Veronese specialized in large canvases with biblical and historical subjects. He became interested in the work of Andrea Mantegna, whose extreme use of foreshortening inspired the young artist. He began making very large paintings filled with animated figures. Renaissance period artists of the Venetian movement were known for their innovation in applying color, and Veronese is considered to be a leading colorist. The colors of his paintings were vivid and vibrant, while depicting a life-like quality. His ability to use color allowed him to incorporate his characters, dressed in intricate and detailed clothing, into the larger composition. He was involved in the 1553 decoration of the Doge's palace in Venice. His work there attracted the attention of Titian, the other great Venetian artist working at the time. In 1562 Veronese painted frescoes for a Palladian house in Venice. This work encapsulates his ability to portray pageantry within Renaissance compositions, a curious contrast to the classical architecture of Palladio. Veronese's innovative and crowded compositions led directly to the next generation of artists, including Peter Paul Rubens and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.

I bought a set of these from HSN. I am always looking for scissors, especially since I am left handed and I have to turn scissors upside down in the first place for them to cut. They came and I used them. Then I bought another set and then another set. They are the best scissors on the market, bar none. They are comfortable to hold, sharper than any scissors I have ever used, and I love them. I have a set downstairs, I have a set upstairs, and I have a set in my travel tote. I would recommend these scissors without hesitation.

I might have gotten this but if this is beginner's ballet (based upon editor's description) why does the cover illustration have a girl en pointe? That doesn't happen until year two or three even. It will give girls the wrong impression--that going en pointe is easy, fast and will happen almost automatically. The cover illustration is enough to not get this book.

I'm going to go ahead and give this product 5-Stars, even though it's not what I was looking for in a pastel paper. I'm into photo-realism and fine details ,and there is too much texture for that, even after blending. The quality is right up there, and there is plenty of tooth as I did do some practicing on a sheet. I'm sure I'll find a use for it. It's just too nice to return.
