Past event: Be amazed by Veronese at the National Gallery

To find out about our current events please refer to our events page


Pioneer of the magnificent Venetian Renaissance, most famous for his grand scale paintings of beautiful architecture, religious and mythological studies, Paolo Veronese's life and works are celebrated at the National Gallery this spring. Cass Art is proud to be partnering with the National Gallery to provide customers with an exclusive 25% discount ticket offer.

Thanks to support from Titian, and working alongside Jacopo Sansovino and Andrea Palladio, Veronese came to establish his role as one of the leading artists in Europe. Working in frescoes and oils on canvas, creating detailed altarpieces, portraits, religious displays and sketches, Veronese's masterpieces were commissioned all over Italy.

The exhibition features a vast total of around 50 of his works. With some major loans travelling to London from across the globe, it marks the most significant collection of classic pieces by the artist ever to be displayed in Great Britain, many are reunited for the first time in hundreds of years. Due to the sheer enormity of the works, the National Gallery was required to re-hang their existing collection in order to accommodate Veronese.
