Benedetto Caliari (attr) - Virgin and Child Between Two Saints, 996
Virgin and Child Between Two Saints
Veronese's main assistants were his younger brother, Benedetto Caliari, and his two sons, Carlo or Carletto Caliari (1570-1596) and Gabriele Caliari (1568-1631). Benedetto Caliari, who was about ten years Veronese's junior, is said to have had much to do with the architectural backgrounds so prominent in Veronese's compositions. After Veronese's death in 1588, Benedetto, Carlo and Gabriele completed his unfinished paintings. They often signed jointly as Paolo's heirs. The Accademia Carrara (Bérgamo, Italy), the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Hermitage Museum, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Kunsthistorisches Museum (Vienna) and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Caen are among the public collections that own works by Benedetto Caliari.
