Paintings in the Chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary, Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo (1558-80)
by Paolo VERONESE

The Chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary was destroyed by fire in 1867. The gilded wooden ceiling with its paintings by Tintoretto, Palma Giovane and Leandro Corona, as well as 34 other paintings displayed on the walls were lost. The restored chapel was reopened only in 1959. In the new carved ceiling of the nave, three oval paintings by Veronese, which were once in the deconsecrated church of the Umiltà on the Zattere, were inset: the Adoration of the Shepherds, the Assumption, and the Annunciation. The walls are decorated with many paintings from the 16th-17th centuries, among them another version of the Adoration of the Shepherds by Veronese. The ceiling of the chancel of the chapel contains works by Veronese coming from the deconsacrated church of San Nicolò in Lattuga.
