Titian at Scuderie del Quirinale

Masterpieces by the great Venetian painter Titian have been loaned by major museums and galleries across the globe. Celebrated works like the Concert and La Bella from Palazzo Pitti, Flora from the Uffizi, the Gozzi Altarpiece from Ancona, Danae and the Shower of Gold from Capodimonte, Charles V with a Dog and the Self-portrait from the Prado are part of this exhibition that concludes the sweeping overview of Venetian painting and its importance to the renewal of culture in Italy and in Europe, promoted by the Scuderie del Quirinale in the past couple of years. The exhibition focuses on salient moments of Titian’s career, from his early days as an apprentice in the workshops of Giovanni Bellini and Giorgione in Venice to the independence that he won with his large canvases for the Doges and for the D'Este and Della Rovere families, and ultimately with his imperial commissions from Charles V and his son Philip II.
