NOTE.--Paolo Cagliari, called Paolo Veronese, was born in 1532, and died in 1588. He early manifested great genius for painting and soon rose to eminence. He soon removed to Venice, where he acquired still greater distinction. His composition is grand and his design noble; his coloring is pure and harmonious. His heads are usually graceful, but in the extremities of his figures and the outlines of his naked forms he is often incorrect. His attitudes also are not always well chosen. His works however display copious invention, a light and pleasing pencil and a fine, rigorous execution. [P. 18; see entry 04130001 for related commentary.]
