Titian was the pre-eminent artist of Venice during the sixteenth century. Renowned throughout Italy, as well as Europe, Titian is unquestionably one of the giants of Western art. His importance has never been questioned and his works have, from his own day to the present, been enduringly admired. The Cambridge Companion to Titian serves as an introduction to this prolific artist. Covering all aspects of his life and career, this anthology examines Titian's paintings, prints and use of architecture. Other essays provide an in-depth look at the culture of sixteenth-century Venice, its artistic climate and Titian's contribution to Venetian painting. Intended as a fundamental resource for specialists and students, The Cambridge Companion to Titian provides a balanced and informative inquiry into diverse aspects of the artist's achievements.

"...an impressive collection of essays... The reader of this volume can thus find interesting material both in individual essays, and by considering the essays together, as a collection, which is a feat on which the editor has to be congratulated." The Art Book
"It will be a long time before the last word is said on Titian. This thoughtful volume takes us further along the road. Highly recommended." Choice
