The book explores Titian’s creative process, technique, his use of literary and visual sources and his artistic legacy as well as his correspondence with Philip II. Offering the most comprehensive overview of these remarkable works, Titian: Love, Desire, Death is an indispensable resource for scholars and admirers of Renaissance painting.
Accompanies the exhibition at the National Gallery, London, 16 March–17 January 2021.
‘What better present could you give than that of an evening spent pondering some of the most physically vital, seductively sensual and vivid depictions of the loves and desires of the pagan gods.’ ‘The catalogue to the National Gallery’s superlative show of Titian’s magnificent poesie cycle of paintings explores the stories of the seven canvases that were bought together this year to be seen, possibly for the first time, as the painter originally intended.’ - Best Art Books of the Year 2020. The Times.
