The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota has opened an exhibit dedicated to artist Paolo Veronese, who captured 16th century Venice in all of its glory: rich people in sumptuous clothing, stunning architecture, vibrant and pure color. Curator Virginia Brilliant says most of the world’s Veronese paintings are concentrated in European museums, so the Ringling’s special exhibit is made up of those loaned works. The show, which runs through April 14, is an expansive journey through Veronese’s career as a master Renaissance painter.
