Retrace the steps of the artistic career of the great venetian painter, Tiziano.
The grand tour of Tiziano on display at the Scuderie del Quirinale
From March 5th, visitors can relive the artistic career of the great Venetian painter Tiziano through his extensive exhibit on display at the Scuderie del Quirinale. Included in the display are some of the painter’s early works when he trained under the supervision of other great artists such as Giovanni Bellini and Giorgione in Venice. The exhibit also takes an in-depth look at the painter’s early days, the rise of his career and important works that he was commissioned to do by imperial figures such as Charles V and his son Philip II. Several of Tiziano’s most prominent works on loan from other prominent galleries and museums are featured in the exhibit including ‘The Concert’ and ‘La Bella’ from Palazzo Pitti; ‘Flora’ from the Uffizi; ‘Danaë and the Shower of Gold’ from Capodimonte; the ‘Gozzi Altarpiece’ from Ancona and ‘Charles V with a Dog’ and the ‘Self-portrait’ from the Prado. The display of Tiziano’s works will follow the painter’s career in sequence, decade by decade. An additional pivotal part of the exhibit for visitors will be the comparison of the painter’s ‘Crucifixion’ from the Dominican church in Ancona, the ‘Crucifixion’ for the Escorial in Madrid, and the ‘Crucifixion’ on display in the Pinacoteca Nazionale in Bologna. The Tiziano exhibit will remain on display at the Scuderie del Quirinale until June 16th.
