Veronese was, in fact, forced to agree to a change in the work. Sly thing
that this Venitian party person did though was to change the title from
"The Last Supper" to "The Feast at Levi's", both Biblical dinner parties.
He got paid and continued to get commissions. (By the way, the church as
patron at that time is a very similar situation to a government grant now.
The public supplied the funds will those in authority distributed them.)
