About the Authors
  • Renowned throughout Italy, as well as Europe, at his death in 1576, Titian was the pre-eminent artist of Venice during the sixteenth century. His importance has never been questioned and his works have been admired from his own day to the present. This Companion serves as an introduction to the prolific artist. Covering all aspects of his life and career, the anthology examines Titian's secular and religious painting, prints and pictures related to poetry, as well as his contributions to architecture.

    • Provides an introduction and in-depth analysis of a well-recognized Western master
    • Provides cultural context for Titian and his paintings
    • Explores the relationship of his painting to other disciplines (poetry, printmaking, architecture)

    Reviews & endorsements

    " impressive collection of essays... The reader of this volume can thus find interesting material both in individual essays, and by considering the essays together, as a collection, which is a feat on which the editor has to be congratulated." The Art Book

    "It will be a long time before the last word is said on Titian. This thoughtful volume takes us further along the road. Highly recommended." Choice

    "This anthology is an excellent introductory resource for those interested in pursuing further studies on Titian and his art. The studies presented are diverse and highly accessible. This aptly titled work is truly a companion to both the art history student and scholar." Comitatus

    "Shaped under Meilman's guiding hand, this collection of eleven essays plus an introduction could well serve as a replacement to a standard monograph in a survey class." CAA Reviews, Maria Ruvoldt
