Painting by Paolo Veronese “Reverence”. The size of the painting is 186 x 194 cm, canvas, oil.
Reverence to a woman resting under a purple heavy canopy is expressed by a tall, black-haired man of noble origin, entered into the bedroom, in a cloak draped over his shoulders. In a high syllable, most likely poetry, he expresses admiration for the virtues of a young woman and wishes well-being to her, her house and her whole family.
This work is the third of the cycle “Allegory of Love.”
