Portrait
by Paolo VERONESE

The portrait was an artistic genre that Veronese had cultivated ever since the beginning of his career. He painted portraits while in Verona, then his contact with the Venetian world refined his portrait-painting skill. His portraits from the early 1560s are numerous and constitute one of the high points of sixteenth-century Venetian portraiture.Veronese remained a sober observer for large stretches of his career as a portrait painter.
