Titian (about 1490-1576) is the artist who best illustrates the revolution and the triumph of color, and hence the very art of the sixteenth century and beyond. His work is the culmination of an entire tradition of painting: from the initial coloring you reach a mature and then elderly painter seeking to explore night and the darkness, to dim hues, and push the use of liquid and dusky tones to the very limit. A prolific author, at the head of a well-organized workshop, was able over time to fully respond to new demands for taste.

The renewal and marked the official image and aesthetics of the ruling class of his time made ​​him the first truly European artist and led his admirers to celebrate it in ways very high. Exemplary panegyric of Ludovico Dolce, "the greatness and terribleness of Michelangelo, the pleasantness, and loveliness of Raphael, and the coloring of Titian's own nature." Appreciated by collectors, disputed by sovereign courts and popes, the master of Cadore today sees its production preserved in numerous museums in the world. The volume brings together some of the greatest masterpieces, including large altarpieces, illustrating the full range of his activity.
