This tour focuses on the two kings of Venetian color: Veronese and Tiepolo. Paolo Veronese was the most sumptuous and ravishingly decorative painter of High Renaissance, fond of striking illusionism, shimmering colors and curious perspectives. The church of San Sebastiano was very important for the artist's career, who was buried in it, nearby the main altar. He spent many years decorating the church, and left the most well preserved fresco cycle in Venice, creating a thematically unified interior that blurs the bounds of art and reality.
Not far from San Sebastiano we find the Scuola dei Carmini, the seat of an ancient lay-confraternity, built in the 17thC by the baroque architect Longhena. The interior was decorated by Gian Battista Tiepolo, the painter who can be considered the crowning glory of 18thC Venetian painting. There we will admire the incredible ceiling created by this artist.
