Review: "Tiziano Vecellio, known in England as Titian, is one of the undisputed masters of Western art." "Written by some of the world's most renowned Titian scholars, this beautiful and generously illustrated book accompanies the first monographic exhibition in Britain devoted to the work of this extraordinary artist. The exhibition includes over forty paintings from every stage of Titian's long career, including masterpieces such as the group of paintings commissioned for the studiolo of Alfonso d'Este, shown together for the first time since they first hung in the Duke's place in Ferrara." "The catalogue to the exhibition is preceded by four authoritative essays investigating different aspects of Titian's work: Titian's life and times, by Charles Hope; his skill as a painter of portraits, by Jennifer Fletcher; his painting technique, by Jill Dunkerton; and an examination of Titian replicas and variants, by Miguel Falomir. These provide the background for a detailed discussion of the works in the exhibition. Short essays by David Jaffe introduce the main themes. The wide scope of the book and its lavish illustrations make this the most informative and accessible introduction to Titian for many years."--BOOK JACKET.
