About the Authors
  • Titian was the pre-eminent artist of Venice during the sixteenth century. Renowned throughout Italy, as well as Europe, Titian is unquestionably one of the giants of Western art. His importance has never been questioned and his works have, from his own day to the present, been enduringly admired. The Cambridge Companion to Titian serves as an introduction to this prolific artist. Covering all aspects of his life and career, this anthology examines Titian's paintings, prints and use of architecture. Other essays provide an in-depth look at the culture of sixteenth-century Venice, its artistic climate and Titian's contribution to Venetian painting. Intended as a fundamental resource for specialists and students, The Cambridge Companion to Titian provides a balanced and informative inquiry into diverse aspects of the artist's achievements.

    • 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)
