Titian Art

Titian Art

Tiziano Vecellio (1488, Pieve di Cadore - 1576, Venice), known as Titian, the leader of the 16th-century Venetian school of the Italian High/Late Renaissance, and the greatest Venetian artist of the 16th century, the shaper of the Venetian coloristic and painterly tradition. Titian contributed to all of the major areas of Renaissance art, painting altarpieces, portraits, mythologies, and pastoral landscapes with figures. He is one of the key figures in the history of Western art.

His work, which permanently affected the course of European painting, provided an alternative, of equal power and attractiveness, to the linear and sculptural Florentine tradition championed by Michelangelo and Raphael; this alternative, eagerly taken up by Rubens, Diego Velazquez, Rembrandt, Eugene Delacroix, and the Impressionists, is still vital today. In its own right Titian's work often attains the very highest reach of human achievement in the visual arts.

Titian was one of the most versatile of Italian painters, equally good with portraits and landscapes (two genres that first brought him fame), mythological and religious subjects. He changed his manner so drastically that some critics refuse to believe that his early and later pieces could have been produced by the same man. What unites two parts of his career is his deep interest in colour. Although his later works may not sing with vivid, luminous tints as his early pieces do, yet their loose brushwork and subtlety of polychromatic modulations have no precedents in the history of Western art.

Titian's paintings are dynamic and vibrant. These paintings, both secular and religious, create a Venetian counterpart to High Renaissance style: equally complex, monumental, and dynamic, but one which made full use of the traditional Venetian resources of color, free brushwork, and atmospheric tone. Most of Titian's work is deep and emotionally charged, marking the transition of High Renaissance period into the emerging Baroque era.

Titian's influence on later artists has been profound: he was supreme in every branch of painting and revolutionized the oil technique with his free and expressive brushwork. Titian's students included El Greco and Tintoretto. Titian was approaching 90-years-old when the plague raging in Venice seized him, and he died on 27 August 1576. He was the only victim of that plague to be given a church burial and was interred in the Frari (Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, Venice).
