Tiziano Vecellio (ca.1488/90–1576)—known in English simply as Titian—was a remarkably versatile painter, equally comfortable with a wide range of genres and subjects. This monograph combines a scholarly yet accessible text with 200 beautiful reproductions of Titian’s works, from preparatory drawings to oil paintings and frescoes. The greatest pieces are all here, from each stage of his including the Concert Champêtre (ca.1511) and Bacchus and Ariadne (1520–3),the Entombment (1558–9), and Titian’s last work, the Pietà(ca.1570–6).
