A new monograph on Titian, with a previously unpublished essay by the great John Pope-Hennessy, marvelous color reproductions, and detailed descriptive profiles of each work.
[Titian] The Maestri series presents a prestigious volume, both for the artist that is its subject and for the original essay that serves as its introduction.
Titian is an unchallenged protagonist of the grand period of Venetian painting, the Renaissance. Peerless master of color, he was a prolific artist who experienced, in the course of his long life, success and glory granted to few other artists of his day. The book features a selection of about 100 masterpieces from Venice and the world’s leading museums, with many enlarged details for closer study.
The introductory essay is by the great art historian John Pope-Hennessy, whose lecture on Titian held in 1991 in London has never been published before. Detailed historical-critical profiles of the works by Stefano Zuffi complete the volume.
