A guided tour through the large autumn exhibition at the Kunsthistorisches Museum “Titian’s Portrait of Women. Beauty – Love – Poetry”.
Shortly after 1500 Titian began to create masterpieces in Venice, which show women in a new light. The beauty of Venetian women was legendary. Inspired by the love-poetry and literature of the time, Titian and his contemporaries – such as Palma Vecchio, Lorenzo Lotto, Paris Bordone, Jacopo Tintoretto and Paolo Veronese – created poetic-erotic, idealized portraits of women. These become seminal for European painting of the following centuries.
In keeping with the theme of this year’s Vienna Art Week Loosing Control, this tour focuses on the loss of control and the power of love in Venetian painting.
