Projects of Andrea Palladio and Paolo Veronese

Instructor: Diana Gisolfi, Professor, Pratt Institute, Department of Art History

Diana Gisolfi, Professor of Art History and Director of Pratt in Venice, will offer a prelude to the 500th year since the birth of Palladio in 1508. Her lecture will look at cases where a variety of patrons employed Veronese and Palladio on the same project. Gisolfi is author of many articles on Veronese and his collaborators as well as co-author with S. Sinding-Larsen of the book The Rule, the Bible, and the Council: The Library of the Benedictine Abbey at Praglia. She has given papers at international congresses on Veronese and Tintoretto in Venice, while her invited lectures in the United States at universities and at College Art Meetings have centered on drawing and painting patronage and practice in late sixteenth century Venice and the Veneto. At the Renaissance Society of America in March she spoke on free re-uses of antique imagery in Renaissance examples from Verona and Venice. Her current book manuscript is titled Paolo Veronese and the Practice of Painting in late Renaissance Venice, and she is organizing a session for the Italian Art society at CAA in February on Art by Italian Women.
