Pinacoteca di Brera Informazioni

Last Supper

Veronese (Paolo Caliari)

The room hosts the leading personalities of Venetian painting in the 16th century, one of the most inspired periods in the city’s art history when its churches and palazzi were embellished with countless superb masterpieces. The Brera collection includes several important works by Veronese. In the Last Supper the deliberately asymmetrical composition sidelining Christ, the unusually dark palette and the everyday setting strike a deep chord, plunging the observer into the scene.
