Peter Humfreys egna ord om föreläsningen
This talk will survey the reception of the Venetian painter Paolo Veronese (1528–1588) in England, from the early years of the 17th century, when his paintings first began to arrive there, until the end of the 19th century, when some of the finest examples in British private collections began to be exported to the United States. The main focus of the talk will be on changing attitudes towards the artist over the three centuries c. 1600-c. 1900, particularly as reflected in the history of collecting. But also to be considered are the pronouncements of citics such as Reynolds and Ruskin, and the possible influence of Veronese on English painters.
