  9. 9. Maturity • During the next period (1530-1550), works of Titian were influenced by ancient culture. • The artist began his series of reclining Venuses in which is recognized the effect of the impression produced by his contact with ancient sculpture. • Titian had also shown himself as a masterful portrait- painter.
  10. 10. Final Years • During the last twenty-five years of his life (1550-1576) the Titian worked mainly for Philip II as a portrait-painter. • Titian became more self-critical, an insatiable perfectionist, keeping some pictures in his studio for ten years, never wearying of returning to them. • Titian was approximately 90 years old when the plague raging in Venice took him on 27 August 1576.

  16. 16. • Titian achieved international fame through his portraits, including those of Emperor Charles V and Pope Paul III. • His earliest portraits (Portrait of a Man) follow Giorgione in the melancholy or dreamy mood portrayed. • In the portrait of Filippo Archinto , the gravity and importance of this archbishop of Milan is suggested by the monumentality of his presence and the subdued palette, while our attention is drawn to the sensitively portrayed hands and face. Portraits
  17. 17. Titian's portraits are remarkable for the way in which they seem to express a psychological dimension while also suggesting something of the sitter's status and importance.

  19. 19. Mythologies • In Bacchus and Ariadne Bacchus is shown leaping from his chariot, startling the lovely Ariadne. Titian derived the subject matter from literary descriptions of classical works of art. • Venus, the mythological goddess of love, is the protagonist of a number of works by Titian, the best known probably being the so-called Venus of Urbino. This reclining nude is at once idealized and erotic.
  20. 20. Later in his career, Titian turned to the theme in paintings for his important patrons, such as Philip II of Spain. As often happened in his workshop, variants would then be carried out for others. This is the case in both Venus and the Lute Player and Venus and Adonis.
