Morando, Paolo

Morando, Paolo a Veronese painter, sometimes called Cavazzuola, was born in 1491. He died young, and consequently left but few works to perpetuate his name; these, however, are of a high order of merit. Christ bearing his Cross, now in the gallery of Verona, is attributed to him, and is one of the best compositions on the subject which can be found among the old painters. Mrs. Jameson says: "This conception is one of the few which realize the scriptural and historical picture to the mind. Simon is here in his suitable character, and no superadded incident diverts the eye from the chief figure." See Mrs. Jameson and Eastlake, Hist. of Our Lord (Lond. 1864, 2 volumes, 8vo), 2:113.
