When a new painting is acquired, it can take six to eight weeks before we are able to provide the public with prints and products such as postcards. If you would like to be notified when prints and products are available for Diana and Callisto, please email us at email@example.com
Jointly acquired by the National Gallery and National Galleries of Scotland for £45 million including contributions from the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Art Fund, The Monument Trust and through private appeal and bequests.
The acquisition ensures that Diana and Callisto and its companion, Diana and Actaeon (acquired in 2009), will remain together on public display in either London or Edinburgh.
Painted when Titian was nearly 70 years old, these are works of unprecedented beauty and inventiveness, rich in colour and compositional complexity. The paintings represent a high point in Italian Renaissance art and were highly influential on later art movements.
Diana and Callisto, Diana and Actaeon and The Death of Actaeon will feature as part of a special exhibition: Metamorphosis: Titian 2012 (11 July – 23 September 2012).
