We just released Amuze Art Lecture #7 which discusses the largest painting in the Louvre. There will be few paintings in the world that can hang in the same room as Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and still get plenty of attention. But that is exactly what happens with The Wedding at Cana by Paolo Veronese. It is the largest painting in the largest museum in the world, painted by one of the masters of the Late Renaissance, and it is full of spectacular colors and details.
The painting is 6.77 x 9.94 meters and shows over 130 people. Unlike a normal wedding, the wedding couple is sitting on the far left and Jesus is the center of attention. He has just converted 600 liters of water into wine, something that will ensure a good wedding feast.
The Wedding at Cana is also part of our highlights tour of the Louvre available in the Amuze app (Android and iOS). It is just one of those paintings that will leave a lasting impression on you if you stand in front of it.
