Titian's decorous, but hardly restrained, paintings became established examples for Baroque painters, suggesting new ways to interpret the Counter Reformation and art. This book examines issues of sensuality and violence in Titian's religious paintings in the context of the changing religious climate of sixteenth-century Venice. Rather than distinguish between sacred or secular subjects, Titian used different criteria for paintings of different sizes, locations, or subjects.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"D'Elia's well-informed text is centered on a discussion of decorum, and of the ways in which religious subjects were handled by Titan and by his contemporaries, including, of course, writeres. She is responsible and perceptive in her use of evidence and provides many interesting observations." - Charles Hope, The Burlington MagazineSee more reviews
"Una Roman D'Elia succeeds in presenting Titian's artistic ancestry, his poet contemporaries and near contemporaries and the city's development from the autonomous republic with a free press to the site of implementation of Trent's decrees as the Counter-Feformation lightened its grip." - Art & Christianity, July 2005
