Venetian Renaissance artist Titian (Tiziano Vecellio)
(c. 1485-1576) was at the apex of the Venetian school of
painting during the Italian Renaissance. The
artist Titian received much of his training in the workshop of
Italian Renaissance artist, Giovanni Bellini. With his close
Giorgione, the artist Titian collaborated in a number of
art works. Giorgione died young, and the artist Titian
completed many of his works. Giorgione's style was so similar
to the style of the artist Titian that it is dificult to
distinguish one from the other.

After the death of Bellini, Italian Renaissance
artist Titian was awarded the title of official court
painter in 1530 by the emperor Charles V. The artist Titian
maintained a large workshop to keep up with the demands of
an admiring public, as he was particularly famous for his
portraits and mythological works.
Said to be greedy and ruthless in his monetary
dealings, the artist Titian was generous with his friends.
An enormous talent, the artist Titian influenced subsequent
generations of artists with his innovative painting
techniques. Right up to the time of his death, the artistic
talents of the artist Titian remained undiminished.
