Titian Biography and Artwork

Titian, also known as Tiziano Vecellio, was a prominent Italian Renaissance painter of the Venetian school. He is highly regarded for his use of color and painterly techniques. Born in Pieve di Cadore, Italy between 1488-1490, Titian spent most of his life in Venice after being trained by Gentile and Giovanni Bellini.

Titian was renowned for painting in all branches of the art industry such as landscapes, religious compositions, Christian iconography, and portraits. He painted famous works such as Diana and Actaeon, Bacchus and Ariadne while working on commissions from King Philip II, Pope Paul III or Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.

Towards the end of his career spanning over decades where he matured into more self-critical perfectionist style; focusing mainly on portrait-painting with unprecedented success. A notable work includes the Martyrdom of St Lawrence which portrays remarkable realistic details.

Despite having various struggles early on when establishing himself as an artist personality; he maintained relevance through his influential skills even to present-day exhibitions across galleries worldwide.
