Gods, saints and heroes fill the canvases of Paolo Veronese (1528-88), bathed in rich golden light and bedecked with gold, pearls and sumptuous fabrics.

This talk looks at his highly successful career and considers how the grandeur and independence of his vision mirrored that of The Most Serene Republic – the city of Venice.
