Xavier F. Salomon
Veronese was one of the most extraordinary and prolific draftsmen in sixteenth-century Venetian art. In this lecture Xavier F. Salomon, Curator of Southern Baroque Paintings, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will look at Veronese's compositional drawings and how they relate to his finished paintings. The analysis of the drawings will allow for a better and deeper understanding of the artist's creative process.
