Pratt in Venice Director Diana Gisolfi's Book Published by Yale University Press

Pratt in Venice Director Diana Gisolfi's new book, Paolo Veronese and the Practice of Painting in Late Renaissance Venice, has been published by Yale University Press. It was released at the 2017 annual conference of the College Art Association.

Focusing on Veronese’s materials, workshop organization, and remarkably varied techniques, this book provides a rich examination of the artist’s painting practice and how it developed throughout his career—from his initial training in Verona through the height of his fame in Venice. Professor Gisolfi’s multidisciplinary approach brings together information on the physical qualities of Veronese’s works discovered during recent conservation projects, a fresh look at contemporary texts from the sixteenth century, and a nuanced understanding of the world of Venetian artists and their patrons. This innovative approach elucidates the working life of Veronese and his circle of contemporaries in new and fascinating ways.
