Paolo Veronese was an Italian painter of the late Renaissance and one of the most important artists of the 16th century from the Venetian School. Veronese was not his real name. He was born the son of a stonemason, known in Venetian language spezapreda. At that time it was customary to use the profession of father as surname. Therefore, he was actually called Paolo Spezapreda. His mother was an illegitimate daughter of the noble house Caliari. From the 1850s Veronese changed his surname to Caliari. The nickname Paolo Veronese, among whom he is known more often, he received because of his origin from Verona and to distinguish him from another painter from Verona, Alessandro Turchi .

Veronese initially trained as a stonemason. But he liked the painting better, so that at the age of 14 he was apprenticed to Antonio Badile, his future father-in-law. Art historians believe that an altarpiece made by Badile at that time, in some places clearly the handwriting of the young Veronese carries. Because of his talent, Veronese soon outgrew the studio of his old master. Therefore, after 3 years of teaching, he moved to Giovanni Francesco Caroto , who was also one of Verona's leading painters. In his late youth Veronese painted various altarpieces and frescoes for the church, but also for the large Venetian families. After his first government contract in 1553, Veronese settled in Venice and worked closely with the state and the church for many years. In Venice he studied Titian , Raphael, Parmigianino and Michelangelo, whose influences can be found in many of his works.

Veronese preferred to paint very large paintings, often showing many people. The scenes were mostly allegorical, biblical or historical. Particular attention was drawn to "The Feast of Levi's House" of 1573. Originally, Veronese had titled "The Last Supper" the painting commissioned by Dominican monks. The inquisitors of the Catholic Church did not like the interpretation of Veronese. Because he had animals, fools, short-lived, German soldiers and all sorts of other characters embedded in the scene. According to the church, the picture lacked the necessary piety. However, Veronese did not change the picture as required, just the name. He ran a large workshop in Venice, in which his younger brother, his nephew and his sons were employed. After his death, the family continued the workshop. They later signed their pictures with "Heirs of Paolo". Among his students were Giovanni Battista Zerlotti and Anselmo Canneri. © Meisterdrucke
