Paolo Veronese
There are three Venetians that are never separated in my mind Titian, Veronese, and Tintoret.
Veronese quotes
We painters use the same license as poets and madmen.
Titian, Tintoretto, and Paul Veronese absolutely enchanted me, for they took away all sense of subject. ... It was the poetry of color which I felt, procreative in its nature, giving birth to a thousand things which the eye cannot see, and distinct from their cause.

Veronese Paolo quotes
I paint my pictures with all the considerations which are natural to my intelligence, and according as my intelligence understands them.
Veronese Paolo
I had not thought that I was doing wrong; I had never taken so many things into consideration.
