The wedding at Cana: the forgotten history of a famous canvas
How Paolo Caliari buried the great master Giorgione for a second time under the colors of his palette, and the swings of the protagonists of the monumental work that marveled Europe for centuries.
The work recounts, in a literary tone, the rugged and laborious remodeling of the central scene of the painting from its beginnings to the providential arrival of Ortiz, along with the vicissitudes and misadventures suffered by its author.
Las Bodas de Cana: la historia olvidada de un cuadro famoso
De cómo Paolo Caliari sepultó al gran maestro Giorgione por segunda vez bajo los colores de su paleta, y de los vaivenes de los protagonistas de la monumental obra que durante siglos maravilló a toda Europa.
La obra relata, en un tono literario, la accidentada y laboriosa remodelación de la escena central del cuadro desde sus comienzos hasta la providencial llegada de Ortiz, junto con las vicisitudes y desventuras que sufrió su autor.
Il Veronese and Giorgione in concerto: Diego Ortiz in Venice
We are proposing that the Spanish musician Diego Ortiz is represented in Paolo Veronese’s famous mannerist picture "The Wedding at Cana". Specifically, we suggest that he is the person who seems to be making comments to Veronese, as the conductor of a viola da gamba ensemble.
El Verones y Giorgione en concierto: Diego Ortiz en Venecia
El ensayo propone que el músico español Diego Ortiz está retratado en el famoso lienzo manierista Las Bodas de Caná de Paolo Caliari, concretamente en el rostro del personaje que parece hablar al oído del autorretrato del propio Veronese, en tanto director de un conjunto de violas da gamba. Conjeturamos que el autor representa al músico como uno de los mayores exponentes contemporáneos de este instrumento.
