Exhibition: Virtual Veronese - A virtual reality experience

This exhibition CLOSED on Sun, 3rd Apr 2022

Cost: Free of Charge


Many of the paintings you see on our walls would have originally hung in spaces that are very different to the gallery setting you see today. Paolo Veronese’s ‘The Consecration of Saint Nicholas’ was commissioned in 1561 as an altarpiece to hang in the church of San Benedetto al Po, near Mantua, Italy.

Through the use of virtual reality, you are invited to see what this painting would have looked like in its original setting and discover the story of its creation.

When you put on the headset, you will find yourself inside a digital reconstruction of the church of San Benedetto al Po. Your guide in this virtual world will either be Veronese’s patron and abbot of San Benedetto al Po, Andrea Asola; or Dr Rebecca Gill, our former Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Curator in Art and Religion, who researched the painting and its original setting. Both experiences will let you explore how the painting would have been seen in its original setting.
