About this artwork

The Venetian Pisani family entrusted Paolo Caliari Veronese with creating a painting of the Macedonian emperor, Alexander the Great. The painting captures a poignant scene where the emperor is seen visiting the distressed family of King Darius III of Persia, whom he had vanquished in combat. Veronese typically had his studio aides assist him with large-scale paintings, but the exquisite quality of this piece indicates that he might have created every detail himself. This print maintains the colour scheme of the original and is given the seal of approval by the National Gallery. Your purchase aids in supporting the museum's operations.

About the artist

Paolo Caliari Veronese (1528-1588) was an Italian Renaissance painter from the Venetian Republic. He was a master of colour and composition, and his works were known for their grand scale and opulent settings. He was a major influence on the development of the Venetian School of painting, and his works were highly sought after by patrons throughout Europe. He was also a prolific draftsman and printmaker. Veronese's personal life was marked by tragedy, as his wife and two of his sons died in infancy. He was also a devout Catholic, and his works often featured religious themes.
