Summary

Summary

Titan, the long-lived genius of 16th-century Venice, revolutionized the technique of oil painting. See his dazzling use of sumptuous color and his mastery of composition in portraits of popes and princes to scenes from religion and myth. The DK ArtBook series presents both the life and works of each artist within the cultural, social, and political context of their time. To make the books easy to consult, they are divided into three areas -- the life and works of the artist, historical and cultural background, and analysis of major works -- which are identifiable by side bands. Each spread focuses on a specific theme, with an introductory text and several annotated illustrations. Few art history texts contain such abundance of full-color illustrations. The index section is also illustrated and gives background information on key figures and the location of the artist's works.
