The Venetian virtuoso
A leading artist in the High Renaissance, Titian (Tiziano Vecelli, 1488-1576) was the Venetian schools greatest painter and is one of the best-loved Italian artists of all time. Titian was highly regarded during his lifetime, and his renown has not diminished in the intervening centuries; so great was his ability to manipulate color, texture, and tone that he is still considered to be one of art historys greatest technical masters. The freedom exhibited in his pictorial compositions was unprecedented and greatly influential on later artists, notably Manet, who closely studied Titians work at the Louvre. This book examines Titians evolution, from his early years training under Giovanni Bellini to his later mature work, giving a wide perspective on the lifes work of this legendary master painter.
