Tiziano Vecellio (c.1488/90-1576) - known in English simply as Titian - was a remarkably versatile painter, equally comfortable with a wide range of genres and subjects. Unlike many artists from history whose work has been appreciated only after their death, Titian enjoyed fame and success throughout his career, which spanned over seven decades. Based in Venice, Titian received commissions from many local patrons and the Venetian government, as well as many distinguished figures from further afield, such as the Pope, the German emperor and the King of Spain. Titian's contemporary biographer, Giorgio Vasari, praised his skill as a colourist; the artist's careful modelling and depth of colour, shown to especially good effect in mythological works such as 'Bacchus and Ariadne' (1520-3) and 'Tarquin and Lucretia' (1569-71), continue to impress viewers in the twenty-first century. In addition to his success in representing pagan mythological themes, his skill as a portrait painter also won him many prestigious commissions, while his renown as a painter of religious subjects resulted in the creation of high-profile altarpieces, as well as individual works for private patrons. This new monologue combines Peter Humfrey's scholarly yet accessible text with 200 beautiful reproductions of Titian's works, from oil paintings and frescos to preparatory drawings. Careful attention has been paid to the scale and quality of the images, allowing the works and their vivid colours to be shown in their true intensity. The book is a perfect introduction to the work of this original and influential Renaissance artist.Reseña del editor:
Peter Humfrey's engaging monograph offers an informative overview to the life and works of Titian, one of the most successful Italian painters of the sixteenth century. Renowned for his extraordinary use of colour, among other skills, Titian was not only in demand as a portrait and landscape painter but was also commissioned to paint a wide variety of religious and mythological subjects, working for patrons as prominent as the pope, the German emperor and the King of Spain.
