Synopsis: Tiziano Vecellio (c.1488/90-1576) - known in English simply as Titian - was a remarkably versatile painter, equally comfortable with a wide range of genres and subjects. Unlike many artists from history whose work has been appreciated only after their death, Titian enjoyed fame and success throughout his career, which spanned over seven decades. Based in Venice, Titian received commissions from many local patrons and the Venetian government, as well as many distinguished figures from further afield, such as the Pope, the German emperor and the King of Spain. Titian's contemporary biographer, Giorgio Vasari, praised his skill as a colourist; the artist's careful modelling and depth of colour, shown to especially good effect in mythological works such as 'Bacchus and Ariadne' (1520-3) and 'Tarquin and Lucretia' (1569-71), continue to impress viewers in the twenty-first century.

About the Author: Peter Humfrey is Professor of Art History at the University of St Andrews, where he has taught since 1977. He is the author of numerous publications on Venetian Renaissance painting and was co-author of the catalogue of the Age of Titian exhibition, held at the National Gallery of Scotland in 2004.

Book Description Mit Tizian wurde der Maler zum Künstler. Seine Auftraggeber waren Dogen und Fürsten, Kardinäle und Könige. Der Papst ließ sich mehrmals von ihm porträtieren; Kaiser Karl V. verehrte den Künstler so sehr, dass er ihn zum Ritter schlug und ihn (in Missachtung des Protokolls) in aller Öffentlichkeit umarmte. Tintorettos Kunst galt schon unter Zeitgenossen als »wunderlich, bizarr, flink und kühn«, und jedes dieser Worte war als Lob gemeint! Als Maler war er ein Zauberer. »Auf seinen Gemälden erweckte Tizian Charaktere zum Leben. All seine nackten Göttinnen sehen so aus, als würden sie gleich aus dem Bild treten. Er beherrschte alles, von rührenden Kinderporträts bis hin zur großen Inszenierung auf Kirchen- und Historienbildern.« (Der Spiegel) Mehr als 170 Werke von Tizian und seinen Zeitgenossen werden in diesem Band von einem lebendig geschriebenen Kommentar begleitet, der Tizians Schaffen und Werk in den sozialen und historischen Kontext des 16. Jahrhunderts stellt. Einem ausführlicher Einleitungsteil zu »Tizian und die Kunst des Malens« schließen sich einzelne Kapitel zu seinen Anfängen als Künstler vor 1511, zur Reifezeit 1511-17, zu den großen venezianischen Altarbildern und den Mythologien für Alfonso d Este, zu Werken für die norditalienischen Herzöge, zu Tizians Domizil in Biri Grande, seinen Reisen nach Rom und Augsburg sowie zu Mythologien und Andachtsbildern für Philipp II., an. Die Betrachtungen führen so bis zum Spätwerk 1551-76. »Giorgione, Tintoretto und Veronese machten die Malerei der Renaissance zur goldenen Ära Venedigs. Aber Tizian überstrahlte alle.« (Der Spiegel) Mit einem Biografienteil und Glossar. (Text engl.) 25,5 x 29,5 cm, 240 S., 175 Abb., davon 150 farbig, geprägter Seideneinband.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Tiziano Vecellio (c1488/90-1576) ? known in English simply as Titian ? was the outstanding painter of the Renaissance. This new monograph combines Humfrey's scholarly text with beautiful reproductions of Titian's works, from oil paintings and frescos to preparatory drawings. It places Titian?s career and work into the social and historical context of sixteenth-century Italy and explores his approach to a number of themes ? including mythological, religious, allegorical and portrait subjects ? and examines the key role of illustrious patrons. It includes his greatest works from the Concert Champ?tre of c1511 (Mus?e du Louvre, Paris) and Bacchus and Ariadne of 1520?3 (National Gallery, London) to the Entombment of 1558?9 (Museo Nacional del Prado) and Titian?s last work, the Piet? of c1570?6 (Gallerie dell?Accademia, Venice). The book is bound in a richly coloured silk evoking the look and feel of classic Phaidon fine art volumes. Bookseller Inventory # 2602
