Titian, Bellini and Giorgione: A New Style for Venice.

Gail-Nina Anderson

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.

Towards the end of the 15th century Venetian art began its love affair with oil painting, in conjunction with which innovation the artists of the city began to explore new areas of subject matter. Alongside his master Bellini and fellow-student Giorgione, the young Titian  expanded the repertoire of portraiture and Christian subjects to include works inspired by classical mythology, including the spectacular “Bacchus and Ariadne”.
