Gail Nina-Anderson: The inheritance of Titian
May | Mon 4 | 18:00
The inheritance of Titian – Venetian High Renaissance
To reflect the ideas of the exhibition “Titian: Love, Desire, Death” showing at the National Gallery in London 16 March – 14 June 2020, the Lit&Phil is offering a series of three illustrated talks on Venetian art. Though these are thematically linked to form a short series there is no need to book for all three and each talk can be enjoyed on its own.
In Venice, the High Renaissance period of the 16th century was characterised in painting by size and spectacle, especially in the extravagant compositions and dazzling brushwork of artists such as Tintoretto and Veronese. This talk looks at the way this vibrant style developed from the innovative art of Titian, using the drama and energy of his work as a starting point to expand into new areas of iconography, decoration and visual impact.
