Titian and the Late Renaissance in Venice

features seven paintings by Titian (Tiziano Vecellio), the preeminent artist among Venetian painters during the 16th century. At the time (1540), Venice reigned as one of the most powerful city-states in Europe, and Venetian painters assumed a position of artistic supremacy in Europe that they would occupy for the rest of the century.
