TIZIANO Vecillio (Titian) was the greatest Venetian painter of the 16th century and one of the most influential artists in the history of art. His use of typically Venetian warm bright coloring and expressive painterly technique was emulated by painters throughout the 16th and 17th centuries who sought to recreate the sensual richness and lyricism of his canvases in their own works. Titian was also an extremely versatile painter who excelled in several different painting genres, including religious paintings, large-scale historical or mythological scenes, allegories, and portraiture.
