Italian painter Tiziano Vecellio or Titian, who lived between 1488/90-1576, was one of the leading painters of the Italian Renaissance, known by his contemporaries as "The Sun Among the Little Stars".
In his youth, Titian was apprenticed to the Venetian artist Sebastiano Zuccato. He soon began working with leading artists such as Giovanni Bellini and Giorgione. Giorgione was especially influential on the young painter.
Titian was one of the most versatile Italian painters and was equally adept at portraits, landscape backgrounds, and mythological and religious subjects. His painting methods, especially in the application and use of color, had a profound impact not only on Italian Renaissance painters but also on future generations of Western art.
During his long life, Titian's artistic attitude changed drastically, but he continued to have a lifelong interest in color. While his mature works do not contain the vibrant, bright tones of his early pieces, his loose brushwork and subtle tone are without precedent in the history of Western painting.
Among the religious paintings Titian produced between 1516 and 1538, one of his most revolutionary masterpieces is The Assumption. This large and at the same time monumental composition occupies the high mile of Santa Maria dei Frari in Venice. Accompanied by a large array of semicircular angels, the startled Apostles stare in amazement at the miracle.
Titian's Venetian home was a venue for many artistic genres of the community. He had a particularly close friendship with the writer Pietro Aretino. Over the years, Titian has created portraits of the leading figures of the day. Between 1545-46, he made two works with Pope Paul III and lived in the Vatican for six months while making these paintings. In 1548 he went to the court of Charles V, where he painted his portrait.
Titian focused more on religious and mythological studies in his later career. For Philip II of Spain, he painted "Venus and Adonis", inspired by Ovid's "Metamorphoses", which shows the goddess Venus trying in vain to hold on to her beloved Adonis. When Titian visited Rome in 1546, he realized the freedom of the city, and his predecessor in this honor was Michelangelo.
Titian spent the last twenty-six years of his life, mainly during World War II. He worked as a portrait painter for Philip. He developed himself more and turned towards an insatiable perfectionist. He kept some photos in his studio for ten years and then retouched them, constantly adding new expressions that were once again refined, concise and subtle. He also finished many copies of his students' previous work.
