Notes

Summary:
This picture illustrates the Old Testament story of the Jewish Queen Esther who appeared, unbidden, before King Ahasuerus, risking his disfavor to plead for her people. To prepare herself, Esther fasted for three days, and artists usually showed her in a swoon to underscore her emotional state of mind. Paolo Veronese was one of the great masters of the Venetian school. Originally named Paolo Caliari, he was called Veronese from his native city of Verona. Although highly successful, he had little immediate influence, the Flemish baroque master Peter Paul Rubens and the 18th-century Venetian painters, especially Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, however, Veronese's handling of color and perspective supplied an indispensable point of departure.
