Churches >  Church of San Sebastiano
Friar leaving the Choir

Author: Paolo Caliari known as Veronese
Century: XVI°
DATE: 1558  POSITION: right wall          METHOD: fresco

The decoration of the church was interrupted for a little over a year, but by the beginning of 1558 the artist had already resumed the wall decoration.

The piece was realised in a brief amount of time and even if other painters from the workshop helped realise the painting, it is useless to assume that one part takes presendence over another.
