Renaissance Allegories on Display at the Frick

A pair of allegorical paintings by Renaissance artist Paolo Veronese will be the centerpiece of Veronese's Allegories: Virtue, Love and Exploration in Renaissance Venice, a small exhibit at the Frick Gallery in New York City beginning April 11, 2006.

The show, which runs until July 16, 2006, will also include paintings dating from the late 16th and early 17th centuries borrowed from other museums. "It's a unique opportunity to see them all in one room and to see different ways the artist is treating allegorical subjects," said Xavier F. Salomon, a curatorial fellow at the Frick.
