A leading authority on the work of Titian gathers the graphic works by the artist and his circle--lavishly illustrated here in 225 halftones and 25 color plates--and provides a comprehensive account of their relationship to his career as a whole. Harold Wethey begins with an introductory survey of Titian's life and art and goes on to explore the complex questions of authenticity that result from the association of Titian's early work with that of Giorgione and others. Wethey then discusses Titian's graphic oeuvre in separate chapters on portraiture, preparatory studies, nude studies, and landscapes, with one chapter devoted to Titian's preparatory drawing for the famous lost mural The Battle of Spoleto. Following these text chapters is an extensive catalogue raisonne in three parts, which distinguishes the 51 drawings attributed to Titian from those by other identifiable masters and from those by anonymous artists. Also included is a useful chronological list of the artist's graphic work.
