Brief Biography-Paolo Farinati, a painter of the mannerist style, was born in Verona in 1524. He was tutored by Niccolò Giolfino and Antonio Badile and was influenced by the works of Parmigianino, ‘the little one from Parma’. He also studied under Giulio Romano in Mantua where he painted his first noted work in the Duomo of Mantua. One of his most famous works was in the Church of Saint George at Verona, it was considered as equal to the works of Paolo Veronese. The painting is the ‘Feeding of the Five Thousand’ which he completed at the age of seventy-nine. He retained his abilities into his old age. Veronese always remained a strong influence on work. His son and assistant Orazio became a successful artist, painting in the style of his father.
