Paolo Veronese

Veronese is the name usually used to refer to painter Paolo Veronese; alternatively it means someone or something from Verona.

Paolo Veronese (c. 1528 - 1588) was an important Italian Renaissance painter. His birth name was Paolo Cagliari or Paolo Caliari; he became known as "Veronese" from his birhplace in Verona. He spent most of his career in Venice.

Veronese studied the local art in Verona in his youth, then moved briefly to Mantua in 1548 (where he created frescoes in that city's Duomo) before settling in Venice. Most of his works are in a dramatic and colorful Manerist Venetian style.
