Four tondi with cherubs

Author: Paolo Caliari known as il Veronese
Century: XVI°
DATE: 1555  POSITION: sacristy ceiling METHOD: oil painting

The realisation of the sacristy covers an arch of time that goes from 1546 to 1555, date in which the grand "castone" is finally ready to receive the paintings of Paolo Veronese. As an inscription result displayed in one of the cherubs books, the concluding date is 23rd November, 1555.

The two cherub couples bring stones with inscriptions that repeatedly invite Marie to accommodate the glorification, the other two respectively bring a book that would become the Old Testament and a smaller book the would be the New.
