Living on an island has its drawbacks- like a very small selection of art supply stores with limited and highly overpriced items. I'm so glad I found MisterArt.com- Great prices, especially for VIP customers, and the shipping is fast and reasonable- even if you live on an island!

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.

This is awesome stuff! I've used it often, especially for Graduation gifts on wooden plaques, with the grads, picture, name cards, invitations, awards etc. Makes a super yet inexpensive gift. Getting this from Misterart.com is convenient, less expensive than driving 40 miles to get it at a craft store! Thank you, Misterart.com!

Not the world's greatest, but nice, especially given the price. More than adequate for practice pieces, and students. I pay more per tube for the professional quality paints I use now, than for this entire 18-piece collection, so if you need paints for practice, go for it! Not especially great for making custom colors- mixes tend to get muddy. Stays wet in tubes for years!

I love the idea behind this product. I use the Redi-Lead to do a stained glass effect on bottles. I would give the product more stars if it had a better adhesive. I have had to resort to using a glue for glass to keep it adhering to the curve of even large bottles, and when making curved shapes; like leaves.
