Renowned for his coloristic compositions, Tiziano Vecellio (c. 1488-1576), better known simply as Titian, was one of the most versatile artists of his generation. Responding to Roman disegno with sumptuous and atmospheric effects of color, Titian’s exploration of different genres resulted in a universally celebrated body of work.
It is thanks to this status as one of the key painters of the Venetian Renaissance that Titian is feted with his own volume in the Delphi Classics Masters of Art digital series. This dynamic text highlights the evolution of Titian’s career while also revealing his remarkable ability to tackle any painterly subject from the Biblical, such as Noli me Tangere (1512), to the mythological, as seen in works such as Venus and Adonis (1554).
