Detail of Veronese's frescoe at San Sebastiano

Dorsoduro II. Masters of color: Veronese and Tiepolo

This tour concentrates on the two princes of Venetian color: Paolo Veronese and Giambattista Tiepolo. 

Veronese was a painter of extraordinary qualities with a ravishingly decorative talent, fond of striking illusionism, shimmering colors and curious perspectives. He spent many years decorating the church of San Sebastiano, such a comprehensive monument to Veronese,  where he left the most well preserved fresco cycle in Venice, creating a thematically unified interior that blurs the bounds of art and reality. The artist is buried in the church.

Interior of the Carmini's Not far from San Sebastiano we find the Scuola dei Carmini,  a handsome 17thC building built  by the baroque architect Longhena as the seat of an ancient lay-confraternity. The interior was decorated by Giambattista Tiepolo, the painter who can be considered the crowning glory and the leading artist  in 18thC Venice.
