Titien - la vénus d'Urbino

Titien 1488-1576

An agent for the Duke of Ferrara once wrote a letter – which survives – reporting to his master on the great Venetian painter Titian. Titian’s health is fine, he says, but he gets exhausted because he paints women in various poses then has sex with them. This rare glimpse of Titian’s studio life illuminates his nudes, which are painted from life and show his lust for beauty.
