Cover: Titian Perseus and Andromeda, about 1554-6 Oil on canvas 183.3 x 199.3 cm The Wallace Collection, London copyright The Wallace Collection, London / Photo: The National Gallery, London

 

 

An essay by Edward Lucie-Smith explores the dynamic of Titian, exhibited in a major collection of his key paintings at the National Gallery London.

The Titian show at the National Gallery here in London has just opened to the public again. It was available for just three days before the big lockdown. Now it is with us once more, though on rather different terms from what was the case previously. You have to book a time. You have to wearing a mask. You have to keep a distance between yourself and other visitors booked in for the same slot. Is it worth the hassle? Yes, of course it is. Titian is one of the greatest figures in the history of Western art.

The show consists of relatively few paintings: a series of large compositions that Titian called
poesie - poetries - based on the work of the Latin poet Ovid. The patron for whom they were produced was Philip II of Spain. They were delivered, when ready, to various addresses all over Europe, depending on where in the Hapsburg dominions, or in England as the royal husband of Queen Mary I, that Philip happened to be at the time. The likelihood is that the series has not been seen all together in one location, for about four hundred years. In fact, it is possible that they have never been seen together previously. Titians correspondence with the patron, and also the finished works, were sent to a number of different locations, as the things progressed.
