Hidden Splendor: What’s happening in painting conversation around the Venetian Lagoon?
Monday, November 11
5PM
Description
Can Old Masters still surprise? Can those paintings or painters we think we know so well still have new things to tell us? The recent restoration projects of two works by Paolo Veronese prove that they can, providing a foretaste of the exhibition “Veronese in Murano, Two Venetian Renaissance Masterpieces Restored” at The Frick Collection, this discussion provides new insights into the artist’s materials and practice. This panel examines both restoration projects and general issues of conservation to do with Veronese and more broadly with Venetian art over the past decade.
