Why Is Everyone Talking About Titian?

Tiziano Vecelli, or Vitrio, more commonly known in English as Titian, Was a famous Venetian artist during the Renaissance, regarded by many as the father of modern art. He was probably born in Pieve di Cadore, in the Palazzo delle Mascot. During his life he was also called 'da Cadore' or, 'of the Cadre'. Although known throughout the Italian peninsula, he had a large following in Venice and was one of its leading painters. He was also a key adviser to several influential artists, and taught at several of the best art schools in the Italian city. He became a specialist in painting the city's tapestry tapestries, which he produced in partnership with his partner Andrea del Sarto.

As with other Venetian artists, titian started out working in the lower classes of Venice, before moving to the top, at the height of the Renaissance. It is believed that he may have spent time in the monasteries of Venice as a child because, as a child, he would have been sent there to pray. The fact that he was orphaned at a very young age, has led some to believe that he might have become a monk, or even a Dominican friar, given the hardships that he had to go through to become an artist.

It is said that Titian did not attend the universities of Venice during his early years, preferring to study art by the time he was ready. One of the earliest of his paintings, The Dance of a Painting Dog (c1490) still stands at the Prado museum in Venice, although it has long since been damaged. In this painting, titian draws a dog in a dance like manner, accompanied by a series of swishing arms and legs. Though this style was typical of the Venetian artist, it is also characteristic of Titian's style, and can be seen in works by the other great Venetian painters, such as Piero Botticelli. Botticelli's The Dance of Paws (1512) is also well known, although Titian's version is often thought to be the same artist as precedents such as those of Piero Botticelli, Giordano, and Marco Del Sarto.

The life of Titian was almost as erratic as his paintings. He moved from one palace to another in quick succession, often fighting to get himself into the picture. It was rumored that he even tried to poison the Emperor, whom he hated due to his harsh treatment of the duke of Italian Renaissance Italy. He later returned to his homeland, dying of a heart attack in Siena while returning there with a merchant's daughter. His remains were brought back to Rome, and after an investigation they were found to contain poison.

Some Titian's work has survived, and can be seen around Florence, Italy, where the painter lived for the last time, until his death. Many of his Italian Renaissance pieces can be found in private collections around the city, and one of his last creations, a work entitled San Lorenzo, was created for the Medici household in 1588. Another famous titian is Santo Domingo of the Sistine Chapel, who is said to have become a very close friend of Titian.

Much of what remains of titian's life can be found at the Salzburg National Gallery, which is located in Salzburg, Austria. A major highlight of the museum is the ” Titian Paintings” section. This area includes eleven paintings, most of which were done while titian was working in Venice during the years when he was based there. Among these paintings are some that show Venetian scenes that he helped create, as well as the typical Venetian painted landscape scenes that he is so noted for. These images, along with others, have helped the gallery to not only honor titian's memory, but to also display some of the best that he could produce, which helped to earn titian firsts around the world.

There are many other sites in and around the Salzburg region that will allow the art enthusiast to take in the full beauty of titian's work. The most notable among these is the St Peter's Basilica, which features a giant statue of the Virgin Mary holding the stones of a cross, surrounded by an angelic choir. This basilica is one of the largest in all of Europe, and is one of the highlights of a trip to Salzburg for any art lover.

One other notable place that one may want to visit in Salzburg is the “Pizza Port,” which is a famous nineteenth century pizza restaurant that was founded by Titian. The restaurant offers a wide selection of pizzas, although the best thing about it is that it is also known for serving authentic Italian cuisine, which is something that no other pizza establishment in the world can claim to do. Other places in Salzburg that one may want to visit include the University castle, which is open to visitors on a regular basis. There is also the House of Culture, which houses many works from the art history of Salzburg, and the Bach Museum, which is a private art gallery within the city.
