Paolo Veronese Among 17th Century Book Publishers, Art Collectors, & Printmakers

477px-Paolo_Veronese,_avtoportret.jpgScholar and book collector Maureen Mulvihill has once again turned her eye toward art and its intersection with seventeenth-century books and printing in a long review of Paolo Veronese: A Master and His Workshop in Renaissance Venice, recently on view at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida. (Her last project covered a Rubens exhibit at the same venue.) According to the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, Mulvihill's illustrated essay, the lead piece in the Spring/Summer 2014 issue of Seventeenth-Century News, "educates readers on Veronese's legacy in the 17th century among book publishers, printmakers, and (mostly) Stuart art connoisseurs." The ILAB website also provides a direct link to the full text of the review.

Paolo Veronese (1528-1588), Self-portrait, c1558-1563.
