[Translate to English:] der Cuccina-Zyklus
Following thorough-going restoration over a period of four years, it is now possible to appreciate once again Veronese’s outstanding artistic skill: the brilliance of the colours, the artist’s free brushwork, the intensity of the composition; in short, the fascinating sensuality and vivid narrative character of these paintings. The exhibition provides insights into the restoration process and the scientific analyses carried out. Particular attention is paid to the paints used by Veronese, including the expensive Mexican cochineal. X-ray and infra-red images make it possible to investigate what is beneath the surface of the painting and reveal the painting processes employed by the artist.
