Titian Essay

1081 words - 5 pages

“There is no greater name in Italian art—therefore, no greater in art—than that of Titian,” (Claude Phillips “Earlier Works of Titian”1897 page 5). This artist was more than just a normal painter that played around in his work studio; he was the father of what was bound to become something greater than he even believed. We watched him work with imaginative textures and animated colors to generate the masterpieces of not only the Renaissance; but also of modern day work. All kinds of artists—painters, singers, writers, sculptures—are exploring their muse by studying how he worked with his paint brush; they idolize him and one day want their work to be as exceedingly renowned as Titian’s. His work has been carried on for many years after his death and will persist to stagger humanity for generations to come. Titan was a God to the community for he was so intellectual and meticulous in his work that he translated passion into every stroke of his brush, which left people flabbergasted with each of his innovative pieces of work.
Seen by many as an astonishing, world-known painter, Titian, Tiziano Vecellio, was known for his stand-alone approach to constructing pieces that implicated techniques that of which no other artist could wrap their brains’ around. Born in 1485, Titian gave the impression of being like any other typical baby, but by 1506, at age twenty-one, he distorted how the world interpreted him and went from an adolescent nobody to a dream that every person can only hope to achieve. “[His] method is judicious, beautiful and astonishing for it makes pictures appear alive and painted with great art, but it conceals the labor that has gone into them”(Giorgio Vasarioin,1987, “Titian of Cadore” in Lives of the Artists, pg. 458), but he didn’t accomplish this single-handedly. Titian began his painting expedition with a Venetian painter named Giorgione, and together, they were commissioned to paint frescoes on the outside of Fondaco del Tedeschi, a living quarter for German merchants; this led to numerous additional painting opportunities for the young Titian. In 1511, Titian took on the mission of producing even more frescoes; this time, he highlighted Three Miracles of St.Anthony for the Scuola del Santo, which was, and still is, highly praised—however, there was always better for Titian. Titian’s peak point was in 1530-1550 after the theatrical death of St. Peter Martyr. This inspired Titian to paint the scene itself so then the Death of St. Peter Martyr was born. Unfortunately his originality was drawn to a halt when Titian passed away at age ninety-one on August 27, 1576 due to the plague; however, the world was lucky enough to have his work live on eternally.
Titian led his community through an indispensable component of history since he was the icon of the generation for sixty-six out of two hundred years of the Renaissance period. Titian was the principal painter of the Renaissance time period since he worked restlessly to demonstrate to...
