Titian’s genius and significance in European art are undisputed. Trained at the Giovanni Bellini workshop and influenced by working together with Giorgione, he came to a masterly use of colour, light and shade. His oeuvre contains exactly what his times demanded: drama, carnal lust, religious fervour, mythology and portraits.
Didier Baussy-Oulianoff takes us to the places where the renaissance artist devised his artworks and painted for the most influential courts. Contemporaries of Titian’s, such as Vasari and Aretino, are also featured and we learn that, in addition to being a gifted portrait-painter, Titian was also a highly skilled businessman.
Extras include an information booklet, picture gallery and trailers. Available in English, German, French and Italian languages.
Art Lives, from Arthaus, is a powerful and arresting series of documentaries on artists and art movements released for the first time on DVD in the English language.
